Hawaii Seafood Watch
Throughout the history of humankind, the ocean has been viewed as a endless resource, providing us with a bountiful supply of wild fish to eat. But today, many wild fish populations are on the verge of collapse due to overfishing and habitat-related issues. Seventy percent of the world's fisheries have been harvested at capacity or are in decline.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program reports an estimate by scientists that we have removed as much as 90 percent of the large predatory fish such as shark, swordfish and cod from the world's oceans.
You can make a difference with your dollars by changing your shopping patterns. Choose fish that come from sustainably managed fisheries and support fishermen who engage in good fisheries management practices.
For years, Pacific Whale Foundation has partnered with Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program to provide free copies of their Hawaii Seafood Watch Card and Sushi Watch Card to all of our guests and customers on our Pacific Whale Foundation Eco-Adventures. In addition, we have taken the step of sourcing and serving only sustainable seafood on our cruises.
We invite you to download a copy of the Hawaii Seafood Watch Card here, along with the Sushi Seafood Watch Card. As you shop or dine at restaurants in Hawaii, refer to your card and inquire about how and where their seafood was caught. Avoid fish that are overfished, are caught in illegal or unregulated ways, or that are harvested in ways that cause damage to the ocean habitat or other marine species.
Your choices do make a difference; please vote with your dollars in favor of sustainable, well-managed fisheries and a future for our children that includes fish in the sea.
