Sustainable Seafood America loves seafood. From grocery freezers to restaurants specializing in seafood dishes, we go through a great deal of seafood on a daily basis. So much so that industry experts are becoming concerned about overfishing and the health of the oceans fish populations. Recently Whole Foods stores announced that they will no longer purchase seafood from suppliers who don't follow certain criteria for fishing and harvesting their catch. There are critics of that decision but what is the state of fishing in our oceans and can we sustain the level of fishing as it stands? Answers to those questions and more, when Charlotte Talks.
