This amazing program helps consumers and businesses make choices for one of my favorite passions – healthy oceans. They actually publish a seafood guide recommending which seafood items are “Best Choice,” “Good Alternatives,” and which ones we should “Avoid.” Their recommendations are science-based, peer reviewed and use ecosystem-based criteria. Their impact? Over 40 million pocket guides distributed, their smartphone app has been downloaded almost a million times and they have close to 200 partners across North America including two of the largest food services companies. Tune in to find out how many fish are left in the sea and how to make healthy seafood choices. Wow.
