Ocean Choice International president defends fishery at World Seafood Congress

“We need to recast the fisheries argument to one of sustainable food production rather than marine conservation,” Sullivan said. Growing world populations mean that there is an increasing demand for food and Sullivan asked if it doesn’t come from the sea, where will it come from? The obvious answer, of course, is from the land, but Sullivan argued that environmentally, seafood is the better option. He even went so far as to ask why there is such a bad rap given to trawling when there are other forms of protein production that are far worse. thetelegram  10:28
