Sustainable Seafood Week: 12-18 March 2018

Part of our mission to tackle unsustainable fishing and safeguard seafood supplies for the future, is to raise consumer awareness.

We’re excited and privileged to be able to take our message, with your help, to millions of people around Australia. The message is simple: if you care about the wild environment and love seafood, choose the blue fish label. In doing so, you’re recognising and rewarding fishing communities who are making a real difference on the water, every single day.
