The Guardian has created a guide to ‘buying the right sustainable fish species’.
The fish are listed below.
The traffic-light guide helps you to chose sustainable fish.
- Green: represents fish that are considered sustainable
- Amber: represents fish that are at risk of becoming unsustainable
- Red: represents fish that in the MSC’s opinion, should be avoided due to unsustainable fishing practices
You may notice that some fish have the green, amber AND red label. If you click on the fish in question, you will find further information to explain this. For example, I clicked on ‘Salmon’, below:
As you can see, salmon sustainability depends on the type of salmon. For example:
- Sustainable salmon (green): Pacific and Atlantic organic farmed
- At-risk-of-becoming-unsustainable salmon (amber): Atlantic farmed
- Unsustainable salmon (red): Atlantic wild caught
