🔰💬 Mark and Eav | Will we really have fish… forever? | Matt Watson from the Marine Stewardship Council

🔰💬 Mark and Eav | Will we really have fish… forever? | Matt Watson from the Marine Stewardship Council

The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an independent non-profit which sets a standard for sustainable fishing. Mark and new Climactic member Eav talk to Matt Watson, Senior Fisheries Manager.

Eav is a marine scientist by training, so has some great questions for Matt around the MSC approach to sustainable fisheries, an ecosystems approach. Mark - as an untrained enthusiast - wants to know how consumers can use the MSC tickmark on canned tuna to send fishing companies a message.

It was great to talk to a member of such an influential and successful non-profit, and we can't wait to explore more product certification schemes, and challenge if they're appropriately engaging with the climate crisis.

In this episode you'll learn about how fisheries are being affected by marine heatwaves, and how changing ocean temperatures are affecting fishing grounds.

Apologies for some audio quality issues with this recording, there was a mic selection problem on Mark's end.

Special Guest: Matt Watson.
