Seafood Watch Pocket Guide

This seafood guide was issued by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program in 1999. Since 1984, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has dedicated its resources toward showcasing and conserving marine life. As the stocks of popular fish species plummeted due to industrial-scale fishing and environmental degradation, the aquarium founded its Seafood Watch program to help consumers and businesses make informed choices to help improve the health of the oceans. The pocket guide is meant to aid consumers by detailing the most abundant types of fish, good alternatives, and fish to avoid eating because of declining populations.
