"Off the coast of Southern California, climate change is disrupting the ocean and the sea life within. As the ocean warms, oxygen levels decrease, and acidity rises, scientists are studying how these changes are affecting species—including the ones people eat. Some scientists are even trying to gauge which species will be the seafood of the future."

"For seafood brands, consumers and environmental watchdogs, blockchain is a tool that can deliver that missing factor – the ability to trust what suppliers say about the origin of seafood. But it’s far from a silver bullet. The technology can consume significant amounts of energy and blockchain can’t shed light on human rights abuses or secure more sustainable seafood unless the players within a supply chain already have agreed to cooperate and share accurate information."

"SIMP asks basic questions about seafood entering the US: who caught it (vessel flag and registration info), what is it (specific species), when was it caught (dates of operation), where (jurisdiction of fishing location) and how it was caught (what type of gear or method was used). These information requirements are intended to help stop illegally caught and/or mislabeled seafood from entering the US market."

"Tuna is the most popular canned fish eaten in Australia and one of the most popular fish produced worldwide. The total catch of tuna in 2013 was about 7.4 million tonnes. Tuna is a massive industry and most of this catch ends up in cans. But while each can of tuna might look similar, the environmental impacts of different brands vary. So, with a sea of “eco-friendly” labels and choices, how do you know which is the most sustainable?"
