Our oceans are vital: they supply protein, livelihoods and even every second breath of air we take. But our oceans are under increasing pressure.
In 1997 after the Newfoundland cod stocks collapsed, the Marine Stewardship Council was established with a mission to safeguard fish stocks for future generations.
Clearly, the challenges of overfishing have not gone away even though supplies of wild capture fish and seafood have plateaued at around 90m tonnes over the past five years . Some 29% of our seas are overfished  and if anything, the challenge will intensify as the global population rises to 9.6 billion by 2050, and with it the demand for protein to feed the world.
