Make Safe, Sustainable Seafood Choices
The global fish populations are rapidly being depleted due in part to unsustainable fishing practices. When shopping or dining out, help reduce the demand for overexploited species by choosing seafood that is both healthful and sustainable. Look for terms like diver caught, sustainably caught, or sustainably harvested.
Buy Fewer Plastic Products
Buy Ocean-Friendly Products
Certain products contribute to the harming of fragile coral reefs and marine populations. For example, avoid cosmetics containing shark squalene and jewelry made of coral or sea turtle shell. These products are directly linked to unsustainable fishing methods and the destruction of entire ecosystems.
Mind Your Carbon Footprint
Carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is making our oceans more acidic, this could cause the loss of coral on a global scale as their calcium skeletons are weakened by the increasing acidity of the water. A few things you can do today to help
Take Care of the Beach
Whether you enjoy surfing, swimming, or just relaxing at the beach, always clean up after yourself. Much of the plastic and debris found in the ocean started as beach litter and as the beach crowds increase so does the amount of trash left behind. Explore and appreciate the ocean, but bring a trash bag (ideally not plastic) with your for your garbage and volunteer for beach clean-ups.
