Why should we choose sustainable seafood?

Whether you subscribe to team brains or brawn, we asked Laura why it's important to protect our ocean and the seafood we enjoy.

"Wild is in all of us.

It is going off-grid, getting salty, being curious, and being connected no matter where you are. To make those little decisions every single day, to be a better person, to preserve our natural environment, to keep our planet a beautiful place."

“To me, eating seafood and having seafood as part of my life is something that's an ethical and sustainable choice.”

Laura Wells

"It's really important to me that my seafood be wild and fresh and if I can let people know that in the tiniest way possible and help them to understand that then that's my job done.

Keep it wild and sustainable for the future. 

My name's Laura Wells and I'm a biologist, a model and a science communicator. Create a future that you can be proud of. Be the change."
