Seafood is popular on many menus, but over-fishing is costing the oceans dearly. Aquaculture is one answer, with fish farmed for consumption in protected environments. In South Africa, the industry is in its infancy, but companies are farming fish that are green-listed on the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative.
South Africa is no less of a culprit when it comes to threatening the survival of marine species by overfishing. To curb this, the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative aims to educate consumers on their choice of seafood and its impact on marine life.
