Overfishing and unsustainable industrial fishing are causing a devastating loss of marine biodiversity through excessive bycatch. These fisheries often focus on large, long-lived fish species with high trophic levels that bioaccumulate the highest level of mercury and other toxins.

Our campaigns help you make healthier seafood choices, raise public awareness about the amount of mercury in seafood, and alert consumers to the high mercury content of swordfish and tuna.
