There have been several proposed programs for eco-labeling seafood products in an effort to provide incentives to fisheries managers to create sustainable fisheries. The purpose of these initiatives is to provide a market-based incentive for sustainable fisheries management
Eco-labeling has become a useful tool for governments in encouraging environmental practices. It serves as a market-based instrument intended to bring about environmental improvement.
Having certified eco- labels on its products shows the public that fish companies are committed to providing healthy and safe products for consumers.
Are you willing to pay for sustainable fish?
