The non-profit Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBA) aims to inspire conservation of the ocean. The MBA Seafood Watch Programme is a globally respected source of science-based recommendations for sustainable seafood from wild-caught and farmed sources.

The Seafood Watch standards consist of guiding principles, science-based criteria and a robust scoring methodology. Increasingly, Seafood Watch is working on a global scale – taking a markets-based approach.
