How Does Seafood Watch Develop Recommendations?

Our scientists research government reports, journal articles and white papers. They also contact fishery and fish farm experts. After a thorough review of all the available data and information, we apply our sustainability criteria to develop an in-depth Seafood Watch Report. All of our reports are reviewed by a panel of experts from academia, government and the seafood industry and are available on our website. Our seafood recommendations are based on these reports. All of our guides are updated every six months.
