How to Make a Difference
Learn about how your shopping choices can help support shark populations in the wild.
If you eat fish or other seafood, opt for farmed sources or choose suppliers that practice sustainable fishing techniques.
- The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guide is a great resource to use for recommendations on which seafood items are “Best Choices” or “Good Alternatives,” and which ones you should “Avoid.”
- Let your favorite businesses know that ocean-friendly seafood’s on your shopping list. Companies in your community play a crucial role in the conservation of ocean resources and they listen to their customers. Ask them to support sustainable seafood and start making a difference today.
The health of an ecosystem is a continual balancing act. As apex predators, sharks are an essential part of their biosphere, and they rely on the presence and prosperity of smaller organisms, even down to the microscopic coral colonies. You can help protect the balance of ocean ecosystems with simple actions:
- Recycle plastics and don’t litter – Even though we might not live by the ocean, our trash can still travel over land, down streams, rivers, and storm drains to the ocean.
- Take reusable bottles/straws/utensils with you to activities to reduce plastic waste.
