Sustainable Catch

I spent part of the summer, Thanksgiving break, as well as winter break in Lima, Peru. Something I noticed, and I liked, was that when going to different restaurants, most of them had a section in the menu called “sustainable catch.” Shrimp, salmon, tuna, and cod are amongst some of the most consumed fish and seafood all around the world.  Oceans provide many resources to humans and overexploitation of these resources could cause an imbalance of the ecosystem as well as a loss of food source for millions of people. There are several other fish species that are edible but there is no demand. I am becoming increasingly adventurous with my food choices, and I encourage everyone to be open to alternative sources of protein and nutrients. Specially if they are sustainable.
