Pledge to Eat Only Sea Turtle-Safe Seafood
Around the world every day, industrial fishing takes seafood out of the ocean for restaurants, grocery stores, and our dinner tables.
These fisheries use billions of hooks and thousands of miles of nets in the ocean to catch wild fish, but they also catch innocent sea turtles, whales, dolphins and other marine wildlife every day. Swordfish and tuna caught with longlines and drift gillnets kill thousands of sea turtles and sharks by accident each year.
Even worse, now eco-labels are being granted to some of the most high bycatch fisheries around in the name of seafood profits. The Marine Stewardship Council is labeling every fishery in sight as sustainable so that Whole Foods, Wal Mart and other giant chain stores can bluewash their seafood counters and make millions in profits.
If you care about healthy ocean life, please take the pledge below to stop eating seafood that is not Sea Turtle or Ocean-Safe! And promise not to eat or purchase swordfish, tuna or shrimp that is certified with an eco-label as sustainable. It's just not so, no matter what the seafood lobbyists tell you!
