MSC launches an international campaign to commemorate this event and the importance of healthy seas

As a study commissioned by the Marine Stewardship Council reveals, heightened concern about the state of our oceans is fueling a new wave of consumer activism where, increasingly, consumers tend to “vote with the fork” to protect our seas.

The largest survey of this type, with more than 20,000 participants from 23 countries, conducted by GlobeScan (an independent consultancy specializing in market research), reveals that 6 out of 10 fish consumers (58%) had already changed last year their habits, in terms of choosing and buying fish, with the intention of protecting fish from our seas.
Consumer activism contemplates actions such as changing the brand, or product, for those that they say help protect the oceans, or fish (23%); acquire different species of fish (17%); and go buy the fish from another establishment (15%). Eight out of ten consumers (83%) are willing to take more steps in the future to protect our oceans.

Among fish lovers, two thirds (65%) point out that in order to have abundant fish in the sea, it is essential to buy fishery products of sustainable origin, and two fifths (44%) declare having recognized products with the seal of sustainable go buy.
