noSeabass (Other)

A charismatic fish especially prized in Greece. Avoid eating seabass caught by trawling, as this is a very damaging form of fishing. Farming seabass is associated with pollution and the spread of disease to wild fish. Seabass are carnivorous fish and have to be fed on wild-caught fish that is not sourced from a sustainable supply.
