The importance of sustainability, especially in seafood, is understandably at the forefront of many people’s buying decisions. Demand for seafood is rising, which presents multiple issues for the fishing industry and the fish population. Unfortunately, high demand also means overfishing. Experts are predicting that wild-caught seafood is expected to collapse by 2050 due to this demand.
Overfishing in the salmon industry, along with other factors including increased demand and the delicate balance of ocean ecosystems, has placed sustainability among the top priorities at Secret Island. Sustainable fishing “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
