Seafood Savvy

Being "Savvy" Is Simple.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

The number of fish swimming in the sea today is a fraction of what it was a century ago. As the populations of fish and marine life decline, the demand for seafood increases. If we continue to fish our ocean at the current rate, the global fishing industry will collapse. How we proceed will affect the future. You make a local and global impact. Georgia Aquarium’s Seafood Savvy Program empowers seafood consumers and businesses to make informed choices for a healthy ocean and ensure abundant supplies of seafood for the future.

The Seafood Savvy Guides are pocket cards that you may use as a resource while ordering from a restaurant menu or making a selection at your seafood market. Now you can be prepared the next time you are at the grocery store or eating at a restaurant.

In the United States, 67 percent of seafood by value moves through restaurants and an additional 24 percent sells through retail outlets. As gatekeepers to the seafood supply, your purchasing power makes a huge difference.
