New report shows increasing momentum behind sustainable seafood | Marine Stewardship Council

With 15% of global fisheries MSC now – good improvement.

Fisheries are a peaked resource – so going sustainable is the only way to maintain current volumes from diminishing. Stewardship is necessary.

For real long term sustainable growth in seafood look to aquaculture. A non peaked resource.

Luckily there are also many other labelling/certification organisations and pressure groups promoting sustainable seafood from other grounds and via other assessments.

Prawnmaster on Guardian UK Prawn article – EJF needs a serious reimagination on shrimp.

Yes a remake of Home Alone, amongst other films, are in the works at Disney.

Re-imagination seems to be flavour of the year.

Sadly the story for shrimp is not being reimagined at all with the same old myths being dug up and used over and over again.

Yes EJF.

Don’t have time or energy to go through this article and point out the factual error assumptions – yet again.

This is regurgitated fake blame/manipulated data – nothing “New” or newsworthy.

Only question for UK shrimp farmer – is it ethical to bring in and grow exotic shrimp from the US even from where it is not even endemic and what with the UK a signatory to the Rio Treaty (CBD)?

Is this not a GMO vannamei Pacific shrimp if from a USA breeding program and also an exotic to the US.

Why get your seed from the US? Apart from the UNOIE/EU live shrimp for culture trade law requirement.

ASC should not condoning exotics either..
