For many #marine enthusiasts, their love for the #ocean comes coupled with a love for #seafood, served with a hot dollop of guilt. Addressing this issue that weighs heavy on morality, the Know Your Fish initiative encourages consumers to make informed choices when it comes to eating #fish.
Speaking to Sanctuary, Pooja Rathod one of the founders of the initiative articulates the need for sustainable #seafood consumption. “People are familiar with seasonality when it comes to fruits and vegetables. However, only a handful of us think of fish as #animals with lives, that compete and cooperate, breed and migrate. Do we think of seasonality when we eat or buy fish?” she questions. “The belief that the only time we are supposed to stay off seafood is during the monsoon, no longer holds true. There is no single #breeding season for all species of fish; different fish breed at different times of the year”, says Rathod.
