9 Fishing Firms Around the World Join Forces to Save Our Oceans


Whether you're a total sushi fanatic or only buy the occasional piece of salmon at the supermarket, it's hard to hide from the fact that our love of dining on seafood doesn't exactly dovetail with efforts to protect our oceans. For years, unsustainable practices have reigned supreme, spreading pollution and damaging ecosystems through our seas. Thankfully, nine of the world's biggest fishing firms are joining forces to do something about it, reports The Guardian. The companies have all pledged to protect the world's oceans and put the kibosh on illegal activities (like slave labor and overfishing).

Under the Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS) initiative, supported by the Stockholm Resilience Centre, 13 companies based across Asia, Europe and the U.S.—which control about 40% of the most valuable, biggest species of fish—are all planning to work together to end unsustainable practices in the industry.
