Co-existing with the ocean and its many resources means being very cognizant of how we interact with ecosystems everywhere. Figuring out a sustainable level of fishing, tourism, and other ocean based interactions is crucial for the continuation of ocean and human well-being.
Reflect: Do I interact with the ocean and its resources sustainably? Where can I find more information and learn to be a sustainably-minded ocean citizen?
Head to OceanWise’s website and take a look at what type of sustainably fished seafood you have access to near you.
