If you love to eat fish, the EWS-WWF consumer guide is for you. Take it with you whenever you are at a restaurant or out shopping. Consult it to know which types of fish are sustainabl!e (listed as green and orange) and which are being overfished (listed as red). Be informed and choose wisely!

Overfishing is one of the biggest threats to marine ecosystems. Today, over 80% of the world's fish stocks are fully exploited, overexploited, depleted or recovering from depletion.

The UAE has a large appetite for fish, with many species being taken out well beyond sustainable levels. Studies show that the overall number of commercial fish in the country has declined by 80% in the last 30 years.

By choosing to buy sustainable fish only, we can lower the demand for overfished species. Take action now and help safeguard our resources for the future.

EWS-WWF is a national leading environmental NGO. EWS-WWF works at the federal level to conserve biodiversity and promote sustainable living through education and conservation initiatives.

The Choose Wisely campaign is endorsed by the Ministry of Environment and Water of the United Arab Emirates
