Sustainable Seafood Week in Australia is an annual moment championing action to protect fish and marine life. We celebrate the fisheries, brands, retailers, chefs, and restaurants in Australia that support our mission to end overfishing and ensure we have seafood forever.

When is Sustainable Seafood Week?

Sustainable Seafood Week is a campaign run by the Marine Stewardship Council and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council.

The next Sustainable Seafood Week in Australia is from 18 March - 1 April 2024.

The 2024 theme for Sustainable Seafood Week will be JOIN THE TABLE and invites all partners to take part in celebrating Super Seafood.

Choose certified seafood

Why is it important to protect seafood?

Australians love seafood. Popular species include sustainable tuna, sustainable salmon and sustainable prawns. We all want fish forever and how we shop can help.

With a growing world population, it’s important we protect the future of seafood, for people and the planet. The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) run a certification and labelling scheme.

When you see the green fish tick label on a seafood product, you can be sure it is traceable back to a responsible fish farm. When you see the blue fish tick label on a seafood product, it can be traced back to a sustainable fishery.
