Abstract


  • Many Australians are concerned with the sustainability of their seafood. While definitions of sustainability vary, according to government assessments, over 85% of seafood caught in Australia is sustainable.

    However, just because a fish is sustainably caught, it doesn’t make it the most nutritious and healthy option – and vice versa. For the first time, research has investigated the seafood Australians eat in terms of what’s best for us and the planet.
