Commit to not eating any fish on the WWF's red list, 183°

Seafood is healthy, and one of humanity's great sources of protein. If we are to feed a hungry world in a sustainable manner, we should eat more of it, and less pork, beef and chicken.

However, the resources of the sea are not currently being managed in a responsible manner. Some populations have collapsed, and are in danger of outright extinction. Many more are overfished, meaning that we get less out of them over time than the maximum sustainable yield.
In addition, lack of regulation leads to intensive practices that have harmful consequences for the environment, such as damage to sea floor ecosystems, razing of mangrove forests to make room for scampi farms, and introduced or genetically engineered species escaping into the wild.

Therefore, it is critically important that we eat seafood that is caught or farmed in a environmentally responsible manner. The WWF has done a great job here, cooperating with Unilever to establish the Marine Stewardship Council certification, and publishing region-specific lists of which seafood is OK to eat.

The local office of WWF in Norway has published three lists, green (sustainable), yellow (ask questions) and red (avoid). With this I commit to not eating any seafood on the red list, only from the yellow if I get reliable information to verify that it's responsible, and from the green whenever possible.

I encourage you to find out which lists (if any) WWF have published for your region, and make the same pledge. The one for Norway can be found here:

Hej Harald! Hur gor du? Sorry for my terrible Norwegian!

In response to your question, the images to each action get added by the guys at Celsias to make posting an action quick and easy.

Your Swedish is quite OK, if you mean to ask "how do you do that" ;-)

Interesting about the images, thanks for the answer.

This task is not terribly difficult to achieve. Don't eat rare fish. If it's rare, not many vendors would be selling it. As it is farmed fish is generally cheaper than wild caught. I usually try to purchase locally sourced fish. Also just a heads up the wwf website link is currently not working. It's tough to keep up with what we should and should not eat these days. Purchasing canned tuna fish that is dolphin safe and low in sodium is difficult.

You actually make it This My Video appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me. I'm looking ahead to your subsequent publish, I'll try to get the hang of it!

I am currently working on research paper and part of the curriculum involves this subject matter. Do you have any other posts I can look at regarding this?
