Pledge to Eat Only Turtle-Safe Seafood

Around the world every day, industrial fishing takes sealife 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 seafood 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 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 not to eat or purchase Louisiana shrimp, swordfish, or tuna. 

Pledge to Eat Only Turtle-Safe Seafood

I pledge to eat only Turtle-Safe and Ocean Healthy Seafood!

I will not eat Louisiana shrimp caught with trawls or swordfish and tuna that has been caught using longline gear or drift gillnets.

I will not eat shark of any type since they have been decimated by shark finning and overfishing with few protections.

When in doubt, I will choose a sea turtle-safe option instead, such as wild salmon, clams or just give seafood a break completely!
