Why fishing nets are detrimental to wildlife and 3 reasons to avoid seafood:
Seafood is not only loaded with metals, plastic and other contaminants, it is the least sustainable food on the planet. Why? Fish are often caught before they can mature and reproduce, decreasing their populations rapidly. Commercial fisheries experience astronomical amounts of bycatch (shrimp is 80%!); bycatch is what’s caught in the net on accident... usually seals, whales, turtles, dolphins, and other large marine life.
