Seattle, WA, August 3, 2015– The Mangrove Action Project (MAP) proudly announces Conservation Partnership with Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch® program.

MAP is pleased to work with the Seafood Watch® program in order to better serve our community and help consumers make conscientious choices on more than just shrimp, which are the focus of a consumer education campaign in Seattle. By working with the Seafood Watch® program, MAP hopes to increase awareness about shrimp as well as the global connections and impacts an individual has on maintaining healthy ecosystems.

What is Seafood Watch?

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program empowers consumers and businesses to make choices for healthy oceans, helping support diverse marine ecosystems for the future. Using science-based, peer reviewed methods, Seafood Watch® assesses how fisheries and farmed seafood impact the environment and provides recommendations indicating which items are ‘Best Choices,’ ‘Good Alternatives,’ and which ones to ‘Avoid.’ Seafood Watch® raises sustainable seafood awareness through its consumer guides, website, app for mobile devices, and partnerships with businesses, zoos, aquariums and culinary leaders across North America.
