An easy sustainable seafood guide from a marine biologist

By now, we’ve all heard something about overfishing in one form or another. As a conscious consumer, you really want to try and make the right choices each time you’re in the supermarket. But with so many fish species and fishing methods, how are you supposed to remember what the good choices are, and which are absolute NO-GO’s?

There is SO much information out there, that the Monterey Bay Aquarium has bundled all of it in the Seafood Watch app. While I applaud the initiative, I also understand the struggles of having to constantly delete photos on your phone to take new ones, let alone having to download an app for everything.

Biggest adventure of my life!

 

I’ve rewritten this post a silly amount of times. My first version was written somewhere in October 2016. Around the time when I bought my plane tickets to Bangkok. I wanted to share with you the story of Sunshine Sister and what was in store for it. Somehow, my scarcity mentality got the better of me and I kept thinking.. What if somebody steals my idea?
