SOS! Greenpeace calls fishing future

Date: 1/10/2008

Greenpeace launched a consumer seafood campaign and released a ‘Red Fish’ guide listing 12 of the world’s most at-risk oceans species, including popular but in peril species such as orange roughy, tuna and arrow squid. It is part of a successful international consumer campaign being run by Greenpeace. Supermarkets throughout Europe and the US are removing unsustainable species from their shelves. New Zealand’s oceans are also in trouble, because a handful of industrial fisheries are overfishing fish stocks or using destructive catch methods. Greenpeace have an official mascot for the Greenpeace truly sustainable seafood campaign, ‘Red Fish’. The Red Fish List can be downloaded at
