The global fishing industry wastes a staggering amount of fish and is over-fishing at an unsustainable rate. Right now they’re taking more fish from the seas than can be replenished and that’s why Save Fish is one of hiSbe‘s 8 Everyday Choices.
But don’t just take our word for it, listen to what Simon The Fish has to say… no one know fish better than Simon and in this clip he talks all about his trade from 1:02 onwards.
There’s plenty we can all do to help pressure the fishing industry to become more sustainable. And there’s plenty of help out there to make more sustainable fish choices when we’re shopping. Check out our other blogs on Save Fish for starters.
The last word goes to Simon: “I still want to have fish to put on this counter in 20 years time. If I don’t trade sustainably I can’t moan when I haven’t got a job because there’s nothing to put on the counter. It’s as simple as that.”
