Episode 94: Choose Sustainable Seafood with Seafood Watch Program Director Erin Hudson

Choosing seafood that is both good for you and good for the planet can be a mind-boggling experience. Luckily The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch is here to help. They carefully evaluate fishing practices and simplify choices as either Green (Best Choice), Yellow (Good Alternative) or Red (Avoid). In this episode, Seafood Watch’s Program Director Erin Hudson talks about why it’s important to choose sustainable seafood, and how to make the smartest choices without stressing about it.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium launched Seafood Watch in 1999 to help people navigate purchasing sustainable seafood through seafood ratings and tools like pocket guides. The program and its scope has grown over the past 25 years. Today, their science-based assessments are a primary resource for understanding sustainable seafood around the world. They also work to transform how seafood is fished and farmed through partnerships with businesses, governments, other NGOs, and producer groups so that people and the planet can thrive now and in the future.
