Sustainable Seafood Guidelines Often Allow For Middle Ground

Do You Pay Attention to Sustainable Seafood Guidelines?

Despite the fact that we're becoming a society that's increasingly concerned about the sustainability of our seafood, there's still a lot of confusion (and lack of knowledge) on the part of both the chef and the consumer. After all, sustainability rankings don't just have to do with the species of fish; they also take into consideration its country of origin and harvesting and catching methods. Just reading the seafood guidelines is convoluted in itself; still, I try to look up seafood when I remember to. Do you do the same?

Yes,always, there's no excuse not to because the information from marine conservation institutions etc is freely available and they do little pocket guides you can check etc i just wish there was a law mandating supermarkets & restaurants etc to indicate the level of sustainability a seafood product they sell is at

I voted never, but just because I don't eat seafood.

I very rarely eat seafood, but I try to check when I do. It's not something that's in the front of my mind though.

So in answer to the question, yes I do. Always.

I was just at the MBA a few weeks ago and picked up the 2011 guidelines for seafood and sushi. I don't find it to be convoluted at all. Once you understand the basic guidelines (which types of fish to avoid, which types to buy farmed or wild), it's pretty simple.
