The world’s oceans are over fished. Many fish are extinct, and more are heading that way. Research has revealed that unless we replenish our fisheries, there will not be enough seafood produced naturally to meet the world’s demands. Aquaculture is now trying to fill the obvious void but even that is struggling and, in under some circumstances, can not be always seen as a trustworthy source. However, due to the abuses in the industry, accreditations are now in place regards production, regulating the use if chemicals/ hormones and the intensity of the farming.
It is therefore the role of the individual to carefully chose what they are to eat. In the area of seafood, to be more aware of what they purchase and eat due to the dire nature of the oceans.
