Seafood Watch Releases Benchmark State of Seafood Report
OCTOBER 2009Seafood Watch, a program of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, releases a benchmark research report, "Turning the Tide: The State of Seafood," on the 25th anniversary of the Aquarium and the 10th anniversary of Seafood Watch. The report details significant and continuing threats to healthy oceans from mismanagement of wild-caught fisheries and a booming fish-farming sector, and highlights trends that offer hope for the future.
In conjunction, the Aquarium launches a national campaign asking top chefs and culinary leaders to take a "Save Our Seafood" pledge not to serve items from the Seafood Watch red "Avoid" list as a way to restore ocean health. More than two dozen prominent chefs sign on.
