Now You know,

You can download and use the guide when selecting your meal. Whenever possible please ask for seafood from the green list. They present a wide variety of healthy and nutritious food. Please be careful and aware when you select seafood from the yellow list. These products are often not produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
Please refrain from ordering seafood from the red list. These products are in serious decline in the wild or cause large and unwanted by-catch

Do You Know

• Prawns are caught with trawlers that destroy the near shore ocean bottom ecosystem. By-catch often includes turtles and other marine mammals.
• Prawns are often farmed in ponds dug out of cleared mangrove forests. Without the mangrove trees, coastlines erode and natural fish nursery areas disappear.

Not all areas in Indonesia represent gloom and doom. By selecting wisely when you wish to enjoy seafood, you can help to ensure that our fisheries remain sustainable and the marine ecosystem remains healthy.
