South African people love seafood, it is part of our heritage and contributes to the livelihoods of many. Over the years, seafood in South Africa has also become ultra-trendy as it is deemed the healthier choice, is high in omegas and low in bad fats. However, we find ourselves at the tipping point where the seafood we love to eat, if not used in a sustainable way, may disappear. Our oceans and the resources are under ever-increasing pressures from, not only overfishing, but also climate change and increasing user conflicts over our marine resources. What many people don’t realise is, as a seafood consumer, they in fact play a pivotal role in how our oceans are managed and protected. Consumers can use both their voices and their spending power to influence the seafood products that are sold in restaurants, retailers, hotels and wherever else seafood is offered.
