Mass-catch techniques are how the cheap ‘Fish of the Day’ or ‘Today’s Special’ gets caught. #yourchoicesmatter #buyethicalandsustainable

At the current rate, all commercial fish and seafood could collapse by 2048″- United Nations. Part 3. **Mass catch techniques are how the cheap ‘Fish of the Day’ or ‘Today’s Special’ gets caught.**
What price cheap fish? What cost to the planet? This photo (via NASA) shows trawlers in the Gulf of Mexico. You can see the plumes created by these bulldozers-of-the-sea from SPACE.
The only way we can prevent this from happening is if the consumer drives the change required for the unsustainable, unethical and mass-catch operators of the seafood industry to change their methods to ethical and sustainable practices. The government won’t do it. The Fishing Management authorities won’t do it. The seafood industry won’t do it. I have endeavoured over many years to drive the change required by petitioning these players in the industry. To no avail.
The caged egg debate proves that real change can be driven by the consumer and I would love to see the same level of scrutiny applied to seafood. Maybe we can stop the collapse of fisheries. It would be a tragedy if we didn’t.
