Think Your Seafood Is Sustainable? You're Probably Wrong

All of the extra cash you've been dropping on wild-caught fish may have been wasted. Mother Jones reports that the Marine Stewardship Council -- one of the world's biggest green organizations that aims to "provide the best environmental choices in seafood" -- has been overly permissive when labeling fish as "sustainable."

The site quotes an analysis from Biological Conservation that states, "the MSC's principles for sustainable fishing are too lenient and discretionary, and allow for overly generous interpretation by third-party certifiers, which means that the MSC label may be misleading both consumers and conservation funders."
