Fact: Because of increased consumer demand, certain species of fish and other marine life are being vastly depleted in the world's oceans. Presently, about 70 percent of the planet's fisheries are fully fished or overfished. If this behavior does not end soon, consumers may quickly find that their tastes' have contributed to the extinction of entire marine species.

Action: Choose your marine cusine wisely! Here are a few fish to avoid when ordering seafood:
  • Bluefin tuna
  • Chilean seabass
  • Atlantic cod
  • Monkfish
  • Salmon (farmed)
  • Atlantic Sea scallops
  • Swordfish
