Should I eat fish?
Fishing with a simple net will not harm the oceans.

Of course, but be an educated consumer! An organization called the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) monitors fisheries to see if they have a good management plan: Do they catch fish in a responsible way, without an enormous bycatch? Do they avoid using nets that destroy the seafloor by pulling up everything? Try to eat fish that come from MSC-certified local fisheries.

Don't eat fish that come from countries halfway round the world. Visit Web sites, like Audubon and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, to read about the fish that are most under threat, and avoid eating them.
