Website launched to monitor seafood purchases
The Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) has developed a website to help businesses determine the stock, environmental and management risks associated with the seafood they buy and sell.
“Whichfish.com.au will make it easier for businesses to determine which seafood to source by providing them [with] an independent assessment of the risks associated with wild caught Australian seafood,” says Patrick Hone, FRDC’s managing director.
Each assessment includes an outlook section to indicate whether risks are likely to lessen, remain stable or worsen. Risk assessment reports are available online.
Whichfish.com.au currently features 26 Australian species including saddletail snapper, eastern king prawn, Balmain bugs and deepwater flathead; with more species due to be added throughout the year.
