The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program helps transform seafood production around the world in ways that advance environmental sustainability and promote equitable treatment for people who catch and farm our seafood. Our assessments rate how fisheries and aquaculture operations perform against science-based standards for environmental sustainability. These ratings underpin our sustainability recommendations for wild-caught and farmed seafood. Our international work with producers ranges from developing new technologies for assessing small-scale shrimp farms in Vietnam to studying the impacts of antibiotics in aquaculture in Chile. We also work to help ensure environmentally sustainable seafood comes from farms and fisheries that provide decent working conditions and respect the human rights of seafood workers through a social responsibility lens. We collaborate with business partners, chefs, and culinarians to promote sustainable seafood and advance ocean conservation. We also work with zoos and aquariums across North America to help educate the public about sustainable seafood through our conservation partners program and work with governments to inform and drive policy change.
