Sustainable Seafood Day Australia 2013
Sustainable Seafood Day March 15
This day is all about celebrating and rewarding MSC certified sustainable seafood, fisheries, retailers and champions. It’s about empowering seafood lovers and showing them how their choices can help make a positive difference in the world’s oceans.
How to get involved
To celebrate and reward fisheries that have been independently verified as fishing sustainably, simply buy seafood bearing the blue MSC ecolabel from the shelves of leading retailers, such as Aldi, Woolworths or Coles, and enjoy.
Visit our Sustainable Seafood Day facebook page for updates and take a photo of you and your friends enjoying sustainable seafood on Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #sustainableseafood so we can share it with our followers.
With MSC everyday is Sustainable Seafood Day
While Sustainable Seafood Day is only one day of the year you can still play an important role in safeguarding seafood stocks all year round by seeking out and buying MSC labelled seafood.
There are now more than 200 canned and frozen seafood products bearing the blue MSC ecolabel available at leading retailers across the country. To view the list of these products visit the MSC's online Sustainable Seafood Product Finder.
There are seven Australian MSC certified sustainable fisheries. These include; the Northern Prawn Fishery (NPF), Mackerel Icefish, HIMI Toothfish, Macquarie Island Toothfish, Spencer Gulf King prawns, Lakes and Coorong fisheries and the Western Rock Lobster; which was the first MSC certified sustainable fishery in the world and is the first to be re-certified for a third time.
Let’s work together for a future full of fish!
