Is fish farming the answer? - What's the catch

 In Sustainability

With wild fish stocks reaching their limit, Matthew sets out to find how else we can continue to supply seafood from an exhausted ocean. Is fish farming the answer? If so what fish should we farm and how?

Matthew has been pressing for a change in the laws on seafood labelling so we all know what species we are eating and where it is from. But with wild fish stocks at their limit, we need to find more ways of providing sustainable seafood to a growing population. Fish farming or aquaculture could be the answer, but it’s crucial we farm the right species – so what are they?

Tonight on SBS, the third and final episode of What’s the Catch airs at 8.30pm. It’s a very exciting and positive end to the series, where new science is revealed and offers genuine solutions to ensuring a future of plentiful seafood.

This is only the start of the campaign for LabelMyFish which aims to improve the law on seafood labelling. So please take a look and ad your voice to Label My Fish.

The impact has been amazing so far, as have the ratings on SBS, so let’s make some noise and get better labelling on all our seafood!!

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in or watching the series. Future generations will thank you!

Episode 3 of What’s the Catch airs 8.30pm Thursday 13 November on SBS ONE.

Last week in episode 2 Mathew learnt about the crucial role of sharks

Matthew learnt how the crucial role of the shark in our oceans is under threat unless we get better labelling laws on flake and the rest of our seafood.

Not everyone knows that when we order flake and chips, we are actually eating shark. The problem is no one knows what species it is, so we could be eating an endangered species on a Friday night without knowing it. Matthew decides that until we get better seafood labelling we should swap out flake for other more sustainable alternatives.
