Dengiz mahsulotlari supermarketidan voz kechishning 11 sababi

istockphoto.com

Supermarketlar qulay bo'lishi mumkin, lekin ular go'sht xarid qilish uchun eng yaxshi joy emas. Va ular dengiz mahsulotlarini sotib olish uchun eng yaxshi joy bo'lmasligi mumkin. Iloji bo'lsa, uni taniqli baliq sotuvchisidan sotib oling. Agar siz baliq sotuvchi yaqinida yashamasangiz, supermarket dengiz mahsulotlari, ehtimol, xavfsizdir.

Biz sizning tanlovingizga ta'sir qilishi mumkin bo'lgan bir necha omillar haqida xabardorligingizni oshirmoqchimiz. Agar siz baliqni supermarketda sotib olishdan boshqa ilojingiz bo'lmasa, biz tushunamiz; hamma ham tayyor baliq savdogarlari bilan to'la baliq bozoridan qisqa masofada yashamaydi. Eng yaxshi iste'molchi - bilimli, dengiz mahsulotlari haqida gap ketganda, bilimli bo'lishning foydasi bor. Siz sotib olayotgan baliq haqida bir oz tadqiqot o'tkazing va qaror qabul qiling, nima barqaror ekanligi, qanday tutilgani yoki etishtirilgani, qayerdan va qanchalik yangi ekanligi.

Agar bu yanada barqaror, tanlangan dengiz mahsulotlari variantlari sizning narx doirangizdan tashqarida bo'lsa, lekin bu maqola sizni supermarket baliqlarini sotib olishdan qo'rqishiga yo'l qo'ymang! Baliq va qisqichbaqasimonlar kabi dengiz mahsulotlari oqsil, mikroelementlar va boshqa sog'liq uchun foyda keltiradi. Supermarket dengiz mahsulotlarini sotib olishning haqiqiy xavfi eng yaxshi darajada.

Biz Whole Foods yoki to'liq dengiz hisoblagichlari bo'lgan mustaqil sotuvchilar kabi supermarketlar haqida gapirmayapmiz; ular odatda baliq bozori kabi obro'li. Biz hamma go'sht va dengiz mahsulotlari selofanga o'ralgan ko'pikli tovoqlar ustida joylashgan, supermarketlar haqida gapirayapmiz, ular qonuniy talab qilinadigan eng kam detallar bilan etiketlangan. Ba'zi supermarketlarda siz qaysi baliqni sotib olishni o'zingiz hal qilasiz va baliq yangi ko'rinishga ega bo'lsa ham, er yuzida yana ko'p narsalar sodir bo'ladi.

Hatto "organik" baliq ham siz o'ylagandek bo'lmasligi mumkin

istockphoto.com

USDA qishloq xo'jaligi baliqlari uchun organik standartlarni o'rnatmagan, lekin siz hali ham import qilinadigan losos, treska, tilapiya va qisqichbaqalarda "organik" belgisini ko'rishingiz mumkin (Kaliforniyadan tashqari, AQSh standartlari o'rnatilgunga qadar baliqlar taqiqlangan). . Oddiy dehqonchilik baliqlariga qaraganda ular afzalroq bo'lsa -da, ular hali ham ochiq to'rlarda o'stirilishi mumkin (ular atrofdagi suvlarni ifloslantirishi mumkin), ular hali ham parazitlarni nazorat qilish uchun ishlatiladigan kimyoviy moddalar bilan to'ldirilgan bo'lishi mumkin va ular hali ham dengiz mahsulotlari bilan ifloslangan mahsulotlar bilan oziqlangan bo'lishi mumkin. .

Baliq etishtirish usullari insonparvar yoki barqaror bo'lmasligi mumkin

istockphoto.com

Hayvonlarni himoya qilish instituti ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, ko'plab baliqlar o'ta og'ir sharoitda saqlanadi. Bundan tashqari, ko'plab baliq xo'jaliklari "kasalliklar, ifloslantiruvchi moddalar va invaziv turlarni kiritish orqali ekotizimga jiddiy zarar etkazishi mumkin", deb da'vo qiladi tashkilot.

Bu noto'g'ri yozilgan bo'lishi mumkin

istockphoto.com

Okeanani saqlash bo'yicha etakchi nodavlat notijorat kompaniyasi Oceana tomonidan o'tkazilgan tadqiqotga ko'ra, supermarketlarning dengiz mahsulotlari vaqti -vaqti bilan noto'g'ri yozilgan. Ular sinovdan o'tgan oziq -ovqat do'konlarining 18 foizi noto'g'ri etiketlangan dengiz mahsulotlari sotishgan. Biroq, dengiz mahsulotlarining ancha past foizi, ehtimol, noto'g'ri yozilgan bo'lishi mumkin. Eng ko'p noto'g'ri yozilgan baliqlarga Chili dengiz bassi (Antarktida tish baliqlari bilan almashtirilgan), Tinch okeani go'shti (pangasius bilan almashtirilgan), yovvoyi ikra (o'rniga fermada etishtirilgan qizil ikra) va qizil snapper (bir qator oq baliqlar) kiradi.

Unda qul mehnatining murakkab tarixi bor

istockphoto.com

Qul mehnati Janubi-Sharqiy Osiyo dengiz mahsulotlari sanoatida haqiqiy muammo bo'lib, shuning uchun Kostko 2015 yilda qul yig'ilgan qisqichbaqalarni sotgani uchun sudga tortilgan. Associated Press tomonidan 2015 yilda o'tkazilgan bir yillik tergov shuni ko'rsatdiki, Tailand baliqchilik kompaniyalari dengiz mahsulotlariga bo'lgan global talabni qondirish uchun bir kunlik 22 soatgacha ko'p ishlagan birma baliqchilarning majburiy mehnatiga tayanishgan. .

AQSh, asosan, Fancy Feast va Meow Mix kabi uy hayvonlari uchun oziq -ovqat brendlari tomonidan etkazib beriladigan zanjirlar tufayli Tailanddan olib kelingan dengiz mahsulotlarining etakchi iste'molchisi deb topildi. Amerikaning bir nechta yirik chakana sotuvchilari, shu jumladan Whole Foods, Costco va Walmart ham qul baliqchilarga tayangan ta'minot zanjirlaridan foydalanganligi aniqlandi. Yaxshiyamki, qul mehnatiga bog'liq dengiz mahsulotlarini taqiqlash Kongress tomonidan 2016 yilda qabul qilingan va prezident Obama tomonidan imzolangan.

Ekranda qancha vaqt qolganini aytish qiyin

istockphoto.com

To'g'ri muzlatilgan va muzdan tushirilganda, muzlatilgan baliqni yangi ko'rinishdan ajratib bo'lmaydi va muzlatgichda uzoq vaqt turishi mumkin. Ammo muzdan tushgandan so'ng, u darhol buzila boshlaydi va deyarli, aytaylik, mol go'shti ta'mi saqlanib qolmaydi. Yorliqdagi "sotish sanasi" yozilgan bo'lsa ham, siz baliq qancha vaqt muzdan tushganini bilishning iloji yo'q. Garchi ko'pchilik supermarketlar o'z baliqlariga o'tirishlariga ruxsat berish muddati haqida vijdonli bo'lishsa -da, ba'zi oziq -ovqat do'konlarida baliq ovlash bilan shug'ullanishgan.

Baliq antibiotiklar bilan o'stirilgan bo'lishi mumkin

istockphoto.com

Ba'zi dengiz mahsulotlari, yovvoyi tutilgan navlardan tashqari, antibiotiklar bilan o'stiriladi. O'tmishda bu antibiotiklardan foydalanish borasida xavotirlar paydo bo'lgan; qizil ikra, tilapiya va boshqa mashhur baliqlarga FDA tomonidan tasdiqlangan qisqa ro'yxatidan antibiotiklar beriladi. Osiyoning qisqichbaqali dehqonlari ham asosan antibiotiklarga tayanadi, ularning aksariyati AQShda taqiqlangan. Biz iste'mol qiladigan baliqlarning 86 foizini import qilamiz, shuning uchun agar siz antibiotiklar bilan o'stirilgan dengiz mahsulotlaridan voz kechmoqchi bo'lsangiz, buni yodda saqlang.

Tanlov cheklangan

istockphoto.com

Sizning o'rtacha baliq sotuvchisida siz sotib oladigan o'ndan ortiq baliq variantlari bo'ladi, lekin ba'zi supermarketlarda faqat bir nechta baliq yo'lakchalari mavjud (va kamdan -kam hollarda, umuman baliq).

Baliq sotuvchi yo'q

istockphoto.com

Agar siz baliqni taniqli dengiz mahsulotlari do'konida sotib olsangiz, siz bilan gaplashish uchun baliq sotuvchi bor. Siz undan qachon kelganini, qanday tutilganini, baliq xavf ostida qolayotganini, ekologik toza alternativalar ko'pligini va uni tayyorlashning eng yaxshi usulini so'rashingiz mumkin. Agar siz uni javondan sotib olsangiz, siz yolg'izsiz.

Ular kamdan-kam hollarda yovvoyi ovlangan losos sotadilar

istockphoto.com

Gap shundaki, losos sog'lom va to'yimli mahsulotdir va uning dehqonchilik sharoitlari salomatlik uchun katta xavf tug'dirmaydi. Ammo, agar siz baliqni tanlashda juda ehtiyot bo'lsangiz, yovvoyi losos deyarli har doim fermaga qaraganda aqlli tanlovdir. Atrof -muhitni muhofaza qilish bo'yicha ishchi guruhining ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, lososlar ba'zi suvlarda uchraydigan xavfli sanoat mahsulotlari bo'lgan ko'proq PCB to'playdi.

Tuna bifteklari konservalarga qaraganda yuqori darajada simobga ega

istockphoto.com

Sizning supermarket peshtaxtangizdagi orkinos bifteklari engil orkinosli bankadan ko'ra ko'proq simobga ega. Simobning kichik dozalari, ehtimol, sog'lig'ingizga jiddiy ta'sir qilmaydi - lekin agar siz har hafta orkinos sotib olsangiz, buni yodda tutish kerak.

Sotib olishdan oldin uni hidlay olmaysiz

istockphoto.com

Baliq sotuvchida siz baliqni sotib olishdan oldin ushlab turishingiz mumkin, uning tuzilishi va (eng muhimi) hidi orqali tazelikni tekshirishingiz mumkin. Tuzli suv baliqlari dengiz hidi bo'lishi kerak; chuchuk suv baliqlari hech narsaga o'xshamasligi kerak. Supermarketdan qadoqlangan baliq sotib olganingizda, uyga qaytmaguningizcha, uni hidlamaysiz.

Hidi bo'ladimi yoki yo'qmi, ba'zi baliqlar boshqalarga qaraganda sog'lomroq. Bu sizning dengiz mahsulotlari tanlovining bir jihati, siz o'ylamasligingiz mumkin. Do'konga kirishdan oldin biz ushbu qo'llanmani eng sog'lom dengiz mahsulotlari bilan tekshirishni taklif qilamiz.


Dengiz mahsulotlarini sotib olishdan oldin siz so'rashingiz kerak bo'lgan 7 ta savol

Bu paketdagi baliqlar yorliqda aytilganidek bo'lmasligi mumkin.

Sog'lom topish, barqaror dengiz mahsulotlari supermarketda qiyin vazifa bo'lishi mumkin. Muammo shundaki, yaxshi variantlar yo'q va eng yaxshi tanlovni tan olish qiyin. Masalan, yetishtiriladigan baliq yaxshimi yoki yomonmi? Paketda aytilsa, bu nimani anglatadi organik? Dengiz mahsulotlarini sotib olayotganda nimani e'tiborga olish kerak va buning uchun okean va oilangiz uchun eng yaxshi baliqni qanday tanlash kerak. Bu hikoya dastlab paydo bo'lgan Rodale va rsquos Organik hayot 2016 yil dekabr oyida.

Bir qarashda, yovvoyi baliqlar yanada barqaror, tabiiy variantga o'xshaydi, lekin bu har doim ham shunday emas. Hammasi siz qanday baliq haqida gapirayotganingizga, baliq ovlash yoki dehqonchilik qilish usuliga va baliq qayerdan kelganiga bog'liq. Misol uchun, Alyaska suvlaridan Tinch okeani baliqlari mustahkam va barqaror tanlov deb hisoblanadi, lekin Yaponiya va Rossiyadan kelgan Tinch okeani cod baliqlari baliq ovlash tufayli don va rsquot-sotib olish ro'yxatiga kiritilgan.

Xuddi shu narsa yovvoyi Atlantika codiga ham tegishli. Boshqa tomondan, ishlab chiqarilgan Atlantik cod - bu yaxshi tanlov, chunki u yopiq tanklarda o'stiriladi, ular ochiq to'rlarda o'stiriladigan baliqlarga qaraganda kasallik va suvning ifloslanishi bilan bog'liq muammolarga ega.

Ovoz chalkashmi? Albatta. Dengiz mahsulotlarini xarid qilishni osonlashtirish uchun Seafood Watch ilovasini yuklab oling. Siz sotib oladigan baliq turini osongina qidirasiz va eng ekologik variantni topasiz. Ilova sizni o'z hududingizdagi obro'li baliq sotuvchilarga yo'naltirishi mumkin.

"Food and Water Watch" ekologik notijorat guruhi "ldquodirty" va "rdquo" nomli eng yomon dengiz mahsulotlarini tanladi. Bu xavfsiz va barqaror dengiz mahsulotlari uchun guruh va rsquos mezonlarining ikki yoki undan ko'pini bajara olmaydigan baliqlar. Qizil bayroqlarga turlarning ortiqcha ovlanishi, dehqonchilik usullarining ifloslanishi va simobning yuqori darajasi kabi ifloslanish xavotirlari kiradi. Eng yomon jinoyatchilar orasida ikra, chetdan olib kelingan qisqichbaqalar va Atlantika ko'li orkinoslari bor. Haqida ko'proq o'qing Siz hech qachon yemasligingiz kerak bo'lgan 12 ta baliq.

Ha, baliqni aldash - bu haqiqiy narsa. Ba'zida axloqsiz sotuvchilar qimmatroq va qimmatroq navlar uchun arzonroq baliqlarni berishga harakat qilishadi. Atrof-muhitni muhofaza qilish jamg'armasi ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, bu odatda mo'l-ko'l, odatda kamroq bardoshli baliqni kamdan-kam uchraydigan baliq bilan almashtirish, masalan, fermada o'stirilgan lososni alaskan lososini yovvoyi baliq sifatida talaffuz qilish yoki talapiya qizil snapper. EDF haqiqatdan ham yaxshi ko'rinmaydigan narxlarni, mavsumdan tashqari baliqlarni (qishda yangi Alyaska lososlari kabi) va ochiq soxta yorliqlarni (xavf ostida qolgan va umuman mavjud bo'lmagan yovvoyi Atlantika lososlari kabi) qidirishni maslahat beradi. . (Bu ikra sotib olish bo'yicha barqaror qo'llanma yordam berishi mumkin.)

Jahon sog'liqni saqlash tashkiloti ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, odamlar simob bilan kasallanishning birinchi usuli - dengiz mahsulotlarini iste'mol qilish. Merkuriy asab tizimiga toksik ta'sir ko'rsatadi, hatto oz miqdorda bo'lsa ham, ayniqsa, homila va bolalar uchun jiddiy sog'liq muammolariga olib kelishi mumkin. Agar siz simob birinchi navbatda baliq bilan qanday tugashi haqida qiziqsangiz, bu asosan ko'mirda ishlaydigan elektr stantsiyalarining chiqindilari bilan bog'liq, deydi Amerika Qo'shma Shtatlari Geologik xizmati. Ko'mir yoqilganda atmosferaga simob chiqadi va u suv zarralari bilan birlashadi. Yomg'ir simobni okean va daryolarga olib keladi, bu erda suv o'tlari, baliqlar va boshqa organizmlar uni suvdan yutadi.

Simobdan saqlanishning eng yaxshi qoidasi shundaki, mayda baliqlarda simobning miqdori katta baliqlarga qaraganda kamroq bo'ladi, chunki biomagnifikatsiya printsipiga ko'ra, katta baliq kichikroq baliqni iste'mol qilganda, simob oziq -ovqat zanjiridan o'tadi, shuning uchun yirik yirtqichlar ko'proq to'planadi. Tabiiy resurslarni himoya qilish kengashining ushbu foydali jadvalini ko'rib chiqing, qaysi baliqlarda simob miqdori eng kam va ularni qanchalik tez -tez iste'mol qilish mumkin.

Dengiz boshqaruvi kengashi - bu barqaror baliq ovlash amaliyotidan foydalanib, okeanimizni himoya qiladigan baliqchilik xo'jaliklariga o'z muhrini bergan xalqaro notijorat tashkilot. Muhrga ega bo'lish uchun baliqchilik xo'jaligi MSC & rsquos mezonlari bo'yicha mustaqil ravishda sertifikatlanadi, bu maqsadli turlarning sog'lom yoki yo'qligini va baliqchilik amaliyoti boshqa dengiz jonzotlariga zarar etkazishini tekshiradi. Biroq, turli xil ekologik guruhlarning tanqidlari bor edi, hatto MSC baliq ovlashda qiyinchiliklarga duch kelgan bo'lsa ham yoki baliqchilikning atrof -muhitga qanday ta'sir qilishi haqida minimal ma'lumotga ega bo'lsa ham, MSC baliqchilikni tasdiqlagan. Shunday bo'lsa -da, yorliq, siz sotib olayotgan baliq, etiketkada aytilgandek bo'lishini va MSC tomonidan e'lon qilingan DNK ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, qonuniy baliqchilik bilan shug'ullanishini ta'minlaydi.

Tabiiy resurslarni himoya qilish kengashi ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, Qo'shma Shtatlarda iste'mol qilinadigan dengiz mahsulotlarining 90 foizi Xitoy kabi baliqchilikni boshqarish qonunlari sust bo'lgan mamlakatlardan olib kelinadi. Cheklovlar yo'qligi sababli, ko'p turlar ortiqcha ovlanadi.

Baliq to'rlarida delfinlar yoki kitlar kabi kiruvchi turlar ushlanganida, ularni ushlab qolish masalasi ham bor. AQShda baliqchilar dengiz sutemizuvchilarini himoya qilish uchun ehtiyot choralarini ko'rishlari kerak, lekin bunday qoidalar har doim ham chet elda bajarilmaydi.

Import qilinadigan baliqlar tobora ko'proq antibiotiklardan foydalanish, kimyoviy ta'sirning yuqori darajasi va atrof-muhitni yo'q qilish bilan bog'liq bo'lgan, tartibga solinmagan zavod xo'jaliklaridan keladi.

Aksariyat hollarda siz AQSh suvlaridan baliq sotib olishingiz kerak va siz uni mamlakatdan kelgan majburiy markirovka tufayli aniqlab olishingiz mumkin.

Agar siz & ldquoorganic & rdquo dengiz mahsulotlarini ko'rsangiz, bu import qilinadi. USDA hozirda baliq uchun organik standartlarga ega emas (garchi ular hozir ko'rib chiqilmoqda). Muammoning bir qismi shundaki, dengiz haqida gap ketganda, organikni aniqlash juda qiyin. Masalan, yovvoyi baliqlar kelajakdagi organik yorliqlardan chiqarib tashlanadi, chunki yovvoyi baliq nima yeyayotganini bilish imkonsizdir. Xo'sh, organik etishtiriladigan baliqlarni yovvoyi baliq bilan boqish mumkinmi? Bu murakkab savol. Agar siz supermarketda o'zlarini organik deb da'vo qilayotgan baliqlarni ko'rsangiz, ular, ehtimol, o'zlarining organik dengiz mahsulotlari standartlariga ega bo'lgan Kanada yoki Evropa Ittifoqidan keladi.

Bu hikoya dastlab paydo bo'lgan Rodale va rsquos Organik hayot 2016 yil dekabr oyida.

Bir qarashda, yovvoyi baliqlar yanada barqaror, tabiiy variantga o'xshaydi, lekin bu har doim ham shunday emas. Hammasi siz qanday baliq haqida gapirayotganingizga, baliq ovlash yoki dehqonchilik qilish usuliga va baliq qayerdan kelganiga bog'liq. Misol uchun, Alyaska suvlaridan Tinch okeani baliqlari mustahkam va barqaror tanlov deb hisoblanadi, lekin Yaponiya va Rossiyadan kelgan Tinch okeani baliqlari baliq ovlash tufayli don va rsquot-sotib olish ro'yxatiga kiritilgan.

Xuddi shu narsa barcha yovvoyi Atlantika cod uchun ham amal qiladi. Boshqa tomondan, ishlab chiqarilgan Atlantik cod - bu yaxshi tanlov, chunki u yopiq tanklarda o'stiriladi, ular ochiq to'rlarda o'stiriladigan baliqlarga qaraganda kasallik va suvning ifloslanishi bilan bog'liq muammolarga ega.

Ovoz chalkashmi? Albatta. Dengiz mahsulotlarini xarid qilishni osonlashtirish uchun Seafood Watch ilovasini yuklab oling. Siz sotib oladigan baliq turini osongina qidirasiz va eng ekologik variantni topasiz. Ilova sizni o'z hududingizdagi obro'li baliq sotuvchilarga yo'naltirishi mumkin.

"Food and Water Watch" ekologik notijorat guruhi "ldquodirty" va "rdquo" nomli eng yomon dengiz mahsulotlarini tanladi. Bu xavfsiz va barqaror dengiz mahsulotlari uchun ikki yoki undan ortiq guruh va rsquos mezonlariga javob bermaydigan baliqlar. Qizil bayroqlarga turlarning ortiqcha ovlanishi, dehqonchilik usullarining ifloslanishi va simobning yuqori darajasi kabi ifloslanish xavotirlari kiradi. Eng yomon jinoyatchilar orasida ikra, chetdan olib kelingan qisqichbaqalar va Atlantika ko'li orkinoslari bor. Haqida ko'proq o'qing Siz hech qachon yemasligingiz kerak bo'lgan 12 ta baliq.

Ha, baliqni aldash - bu haqiqiy narsa. Ba'zida axloqsiz sotuvchilar qimmatroq va qimmatroq navlar uchun arzonroq baliqlarni berishga harakat qilishadi. Atrof-muhitni muhofaza qilish jamg'armasi ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, bu ko'pincha mo'l-ko'l, odatda, kamroq bardoshli baliqni kamdan-kam uchraydigan baliq bilan almashtirish, masalan, fermada etishtirilgan lososni alaskan lososini yovvoyi tutilgan yoki talapiya-qizil snapper. EDF haqiqatdan ham yaxshi ko'rinmaydigan narxlarni, mavsumdan tashqari baliqlarni (qishda yangi Alyaska lososlari kabi) va ochiq soxta yorliqlarni (xavf ostida qolgan va umuman mavjud bo'lmagan yovvoyi Atlantika lososlari kabi) qidirishni maslahat beradi. . (Bu ikra sotib olish bo'yicha barqaror qo'llanma yordam berishi mumkin.)

Jahon sog'liqni saqlash tashkilotining ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, dengiz mahsulotlarini iste'mol qilish odamlarga simob ta'sir qilishining birinchi usuli hisoblanadi. Merkuriy asab tizimiga toksik ta'sir ko'rsatadi, hatto oz miqdorda bo'lsa ham, ayniqsa, homila va bolalar uchun jiddiy sog'liq muammolariga olib kelishi mumkin. Agar siz simob birinchi navbatda baliq bilan qanday tugashi haqida qiziqsangiz, bu asosan ko'mir yoqadigan elektr stantsiyalarining chiqindilaridan kelib chiqadi, deydi Amerika Qo'shma Shtatlari Geologik xizmati. Ko'mir yoqilganda atmosferaga simob chiqadi va u suv zarralari bilan birlashadi. Yomg'ir simobni okean va daryolarga olib keladi, bu erda suv o'tlari, baliqlar va boshqa organizmlar uni suvdan yutadi.

Simobdan saqlanishning eng yaxshi qoidasi shundaki, mayda baliqlarda simobning miqdori katta baliqlarga qaraganda kamroq bo'ladi, chunki biomagnifikatsiya printsipiga ko'ra, katta baliq kichikroq baliqni iste'mol qilganda, simob oziq -ovqat zanjiridan o'tadi, shuning uchun yirik yirtqichlar ko'proq to'planadi. Tabiiy resurslarni himoya qilish kengashining ushbu foydali jadvalini tekshirib ko'ring, qaysi baliqlarda simob eng kam va ularni qanchalik tez -tez iste'mol qilish mumkin.

Dengiz boshqaruvi kengashi - bu barqaror baliq ovlash amaliyotidan foydalanib, okeanimizni himoya qiladigan baliqchilik xo'jaliklariga o'z muhrini bergan xalqaro notijorat tashkilot. Muhrga ega bo'lish uchun baliqchilik xo'jaligi MSC & rsquos mezonlari bo'yicha mustaqil ravishda sertifikatlanadi, bu maqsadli turlarning sog'lom yoki yo'qligini va baliqchilik amaliyoti boshqa dengiz jonzotlariga zarar etkazishini tekshiradi. Biroq, turli xil ekologik guruhlarning tanqidlari bor edi, hatto MSC baliq ovlashda qiyinchiliklarga duch kelgan bo'lsa ham yoki baliqchilikning atrof -muhitga qanday ta'sir qilishi haqida minimal ma'lumotga ega bo'lsa ham, MSC baliqchilikni tasdiqlagan. Shunday bo'lsa -da, yorliq, siz sotib olayotgan baliq, etiketkada aytilgandek bo'lishini va MSC tomonidan e'lon qilingan DNK ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, qonuniy baliqchilik bilan shug'ullanishini ta'minlaydi.

Tabiiy resurslarni himoya qilish kengashi ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, Qo'shma Shtatlarda iste'mol qilinadigan dengiz mahsulotlarining 90 foizi Xitoy kabi baliqchilikni boshqarish qonunlari sust bo'lgan mamlakatlardan olib kelinadi. Cheklovlar yo'qligi sababli, ko'p turlar ortiqcha ovlanadi.

Baliq to'rlarida delfinlar yoki kitlar kabi keraksiz turlar ushlanib qolganda, ularni ushlab qolish masalasi ham bor. AQShda baliqchilar dengiz sutemizuvchilarini himoya qilish uchun ehtiyot choralarini ko'rishlari kerak, lekin bunday qoidalar har doim ham chet elda bajarilmaydi.

Import qilinadigan baliqlar tobora ko'proq antibiotiklardan foydalanish, kimyoviy ta'sirning yuqori darajasi va atrof-muhitni yo'q qilish bilan bog'liq bo'lgan, tartibga solinmagan zavod xo'jaliklaridan keladi.

Ko'pgina hollarda, siz AQSh suvlaridan baliq sotib olishingiz kerak va siz uni mamlakatdan kelgan majburiy markirovka tufayli aniqlab olishingiz mumkin.

Agar siz & ldquoorganic & rdquo dengiz mahsulotlarini ko'rsangiz, bu import qilinadi. USDA hozirda baliq uchun organik standartlarga ega emas (garchi ular hozir ko'rib chiqilmoqda). Muammoning bir qismi shundaki, dengiz haqida gap ketganda, organikni aniqlash juda qiyin. Masalan, yovvoyi baliqlar kelajakdagi organik yorliqlardan chiqarib tashlanadi, chunki yovvoyi baliq nima yeyayotganini bilish imkonsizdir. Xo'sh, organik etishtiriladigan baliqlarni yovvoyi baliq bilan boqish mumkinmi? Bu murakkab savol. Agar siz supermarketda o'zlarini organik deb da'vo qilayotgan baliqlarni ko'rsangiz, ular, ehtimol, o'zlarining organik dengiz mahsulotlari standartlariga ega bo'lgan Kanada yoki Evropa Ittifoqidan keladi.

If you see &ldquoorganic&rdquo seafood, it&rsquos an import. The USDA currently does not have organic standards for fish (though they are currently under consideration). Part of the issue is that, when it comes to the sea, organic is very hard to define. For example, wild-caught fish are excluded from any future organic label because it&rsquos impossible to know what wild fish are eating. So can organic farmed fish be fed wild fish? It&rsquos a complicated question. If you see fish claiming to be organic in the supermarket, they&rsquore likely from Canada or the EU, which have their own organic seafood standards.


7 Questions You Should Ask About Your Seafood Before You Buy It

The fish in that package may not be what the label says it is.

Finding healthy, sustainable seafood at the supermarket can be a difficult task. The problem isn&rsquot that there aren't any good options it&rsquos that recognizing the best choices is tricky. For example, is farmed fish a good thing or a bad thing? What does it mean if the package says organik? Here's what you should consider when buying seafood, and how to choose the catch for that&rsquos best for the ocean and your family. This story originally appeared on Rodale&rsquos Organic Life in December 2016.

At first glance, wild-caught fish sounds like the more sustainable, natural option, but that&rsquos not always the case. Everything depends on what kind of fish you&rsquore talking about, the fishing or farming method used, and where the fish comes from. For example, wild-caught Pacific cod from Alaskan waters is considered a solid, sustainable choice, but wild-caught Pacific cod from Japan and Russia are on the don&rsquot-buy list due to overfishing.

The same goes for all wild Atlantic cod. But farmed Atlantic cod, on the other hand, is a good choice because it's raised in closed tanks, which have fewer issues with disease and water contamination than fish raised in open net pens.

Sound confusing? Albatta. To make navigating the waters of seafood shopping easier, download the Seafood Watch app. You easily search for the type of fish you&rsquore buying to find the most eco-friendly option. The app can direct you to reputable fishmongers in your area, too.

The environmental nonprofit group Food and Water Watch has named the &ldquodirty dozen&rdquo worst seafood choices you can make. These are fish that fail to meet two or more of the group&rsquos criteria for safe and sustainable seafood. Red flags include species overfishing, pollution from farming methods, and contamination concerns, such as high mercury levels. Among the worst offenders are caviar, imported farmed shrimp, and Atlantic bluefin tuna. Read more about the 12 fish you should never eat.

Yes, fish fraud is a real thing. Sometimes unethical sellers will try to pass off cheaper fish for expensive, more desirable varieties. Often this is a case of swapping a more abundant, usually less-sustainable fish for a rarer one, according to the Environmental Defense Fund, such as mislabeling farm-raised salmon as wild-caught Alaskan salmon or pretending talapia is red snapper. The EDF advises looking out for prices that seem too good to be true, out-of-season fish (like fresh wild Alaskan salmon in winter), and outright false labels (like wild Atlantic salmon, which is endangered and not available at all). (Bu sustainable salmon buying guide can help.)

According to the World Health Organization, eating seafood is the number one way people are likely to be exposed to mercury. Mercury is toxic to the nervous system, and even small amounts can cause serious health problems, particularly for fetuses and children. If you&rsquore wondering how mercury even ends up in fish in the first place, it&rsquos largely due to emissions from coal-fired power plants, according to the United States Geological Survey. Burning coal releases mercury into the atmosphere where it combines with water particles. Rain carries the mercury into oceans and rivers, where algae, fish, and other organisms absorb it from the water.

The best rule of thumb for avoiding mercury is that small fish contain less mercury than big fish due to the principle of biomagnification when a big fish eats a smaller fish, the mercury gets passed up the food chain, so large predators accumulate more. Check out this handy chart from the Natural Resources Defense Council to see which fish have the least amount of mercury and how often it&rsquos safe to eat them.

The Marine Stewardship Council is an international nonprofit that gives its seal of approval to fisheries that protect our oceans by using sustainable fishing practices. In order to earn the seal, fisheries are independently certified using the MSC&rsquos criteria, which looks at whether the target species is healthy and if fishing practices are harming other sea creatures. However, there have been criticisms from various environmental groups that the MSC has actually certified fisheries even if the target fish are in trouble or despite minimal information on how the fishery is impacting the environment. Still, the label does ensure that the fish you&rsquore buying is really what the label says it is and can be traced back to a legal fishery, according to DNA data released by the MSC.

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 90 percent of the seafood consumed in the United States is imported from countries with lax fishery management laws, like China. Due to the lack of restriction, many species are overfished.

There&rsquos also the issue of bycatch&mdashwhen unwanted species like dolphins or whales are captured in fishing nets. In the US, fishermen must take precautions to protect marine mammals, but these kinds of rules are not always enforced abroad.

Imported fish increasingly come from under-regulated factory farms, too, which are associated with heavy antibiotic use, high levels of chemical exposure, and environmental destruction.

In most cases, you should buy fish from US waters you&rsquoll be able to spot it thanks to mandatory country-of-origin labeling.

Check out this handy chart from the Natural Resources Defense Council to see which fish have the least amount of mercury and how often it&rsquos safe to eat them.

The Marine Stewardship Council is an international nonprofit that gives its seal of approval to fisheries that protect our oceans by using sustainable fishing practices. In order to earn the seal, fisheries are independently certified using the MSC&rsquos criteria, which looks at whether the target species is healthy and if fishing practices are harming other sea creatures. However, there have been criticisms from various environmental groups that the MSC has actually certified fisheries even if the target fish are in trouble or despite minimal information on how the fishery is impacting the environment. Still, the label does ensure that the fish you&rsquore buying is really what the label says it is and can be traced back to a legal fishery, according to DNA data released by the MSC.

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 90 percent of the seafood consumed in the United States is imported from countries with lax fishery management laws, like China. Due to the lack of restriction, many species are overfished.

There&rsquos also the issue of bycatch&mdashwhen unwanted species like dolphins or whales are captured in fishing nets. In the US, fishermen must take precautions to protect marine mammals, but these kinds of rules are not always enforced abroad.

Imported fish increasingly come from under-regulated factory farms, too, which are associated with heavy antibiotic use, high levels of chemical exposure, and environmental destruction.

In most cases, you should buy fish from US waters you&rsquoll be able to spot it thanks to mandatory country-of-origin labeling.

If you see &ldquoorganic&rdquo seafood, it&rsquos an import. The USDA currently does not have organic standards for fish (though they are currently under consideration). Part of the issue is that, when it comes to the sea, organic is very hard to define. For example, wild-caught fish are excluded from any future organic label because it&rsquos impossible to know what wild fish are eating. So can organic farmed fish be fed wild fish? It&rsquos a complicated question. If you see fish claiming to be organic in the supermarket, they&rsquore likely from Canada or the EU, which have their own organic seafood standards.


7 Questions You Should Ask About Your Seafood Before You Buy It

The fish in that package may not be what the label says it is.

Finding healthy, sustainable seafood at the supermarket can be a difficult task. The problem isn&rsquot that there aren't any good options it&rsquos that recognizing the best choices is tricky. For example, is farmed fish a good thing or a bad thing? What does it mean if the package says organik? Here's what you should consider when buying seafood, and how to choose the catch for that&rsquos best for the ocean and your family. This story originally appeared on Rodale&rsquos Organic Life in December 2016.

At first glance, wild-caught fish sounds like the more sustainable, natural option, but that&rsquos not always the case. Everything depends on what kind of fish you&rsquore talking about, the fishing or farming method used, and where the fish comes from. For example, wild-caught Pacific cod from Alaskan waters is considered a solid, sustainable choice, but wild-caught Pacific cod from Japan and Russia are on the don&rsquot-buy list due to overfishing.

The same goes for all wild Atlantic cod. But farmed Atlantic cod, on the other hand, is a good choice because it's raised in closed tanks, which have fewer issues with disease and water contamination than fish raised in open net pens.

Sound confusing? Albatta. To make navigating the waters of seafood shopping easier, download the Seafood Watch app. You easily search for the type of fish you&rsquore buying to find the most eco-friendly option. The app can direct you to reputable fishmongers in your area, too.

The environmental nonprofit group Food and Water Watch has named the &ldquodirty dozen&rdquo worst seafood choices you can make. These are fish that fail to meet two or more of the group&rsquos criteria for safe and sustainable seafood. Red flags include species overfishing, pollution from farming methods, and contamination concerns, such as high mercury levels. Among the worst offenders are caviar, imported farmed shrimp, and Atlantic bluefin tuna. Read more about the 12 fish you should never eat.

Yes, fish fraud is a real thing. Sometimes unethical sellers will try to pass off cheaper fish for expensive, more desirable varieties. Often this is a case of swapping a more abundant, usually less-sustainable fish for a rarer one, according to the Environmental Defense Fund, such as mislabeling farm-raised salmon as wild-caught Alaskan salmon or pretending talapia is red snapper. The EDF advises looking out for prices that seem too good to be true, out-of-season fish (like fresh wild Alaskan salmon in winter), and outright false labels (like wild Atlantic salmon, which is endangered and not available at all). (Bu sustainable salmon buying guide can help.)

According to the World Health Organization, eating seafood is the number one way people are likely to be exposed to mercury. Mercury is toxic to the nervous system, and even small amounts can cause serious health problems, particularly for fetuses and children. If you&rsquore wondering how mercury even ends up in fish in the first place, it&rsquos largely due to emissions from coal-fired power plants, according to the United States Geological Survey. Burning coal releases mercury into the atmosphere where it combines with water particles. Rain carries the mercury into oceans and rivers, where algae, fish, and other organisms absorb it from the water.
