What Is Sustainable Seafood? +
According to SeaChoice.org, sustainable seafood is defined as ocean-friendly fish or shellfish that is caught or farmed in a manner that can be sustained over the long-term without compromising the health of marine ecosystems.
Why Is This Important In Saskatchewan? +
Seafood is the primary source of protein for more than one billion people. But most importantly, the oceans are the largest ecosystem on Earth. Oceans generate more than half of the oxygen that we breathe and contain 97% of Earth's water. Protecting this resource, which has been called the life support system for the planet, is important for everyone, regardless of where we live.
What Else Can Be Done To Help? +
The Saskatchewan Science Centre is doing its part to help the world's oceans by taking steps to reduce plastic pollution, including removing bottled water from our facility and offering reusable water bottles to visitors in our concessions, as well as raising awareness of these vital issues. You can help by reducing your use of disposable plastics and also by making ocean friendly seafood choices when dining out or shopping for groceries.
