Coastal and marine ecosystems are wild seafood factories. To ensure a sustainable seafood supply, we must cultivate and restore their food production capacity.
You can help your ecosystem produce more seafood by avoiding use of pesticides, fertilizers, and weed killers; bringing septic systems up to date; choosing green pavement over impervious surfaces; walking, biking, and taking public transit; supporting policies that improve water quality; advocating for limits on greenhouse gas emissions; getting involved in local dam removal and fish passage efforts; volunteering for sea grass and shellfish restoration projects; and joining a local watershed monitoring group. Or simply by finding out what your local fishermen are saying about habitat stewardship, and support their local advocacy efforts!
Nurture the ecosystem that nurtures you!
