As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

It is easy to sit up and take notice.

What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
~Al Batt


The letter below is a call to action. It is very aware of where the seafood you eat comes from.

To do this you can view the guide for your area regarding the Seafood Watch program. It will tell you which seafood to buy and why. Since you should be enjoying fish at least 2 times per week, this can be an easy change to make. It is your consumer dollar and you have the power to make change by making wise purchases.

Thanks for choosing consciously! It is better for your health and the environment.
You may not always be in the position to make the conscious choice and that is okay. The point is that you are aware and make them when you can!
In health! ~j

Dear friends,

A disturbing new study released today in the journal Science forecasts dire consequences for ocean wildlife if current fishing patterns continue. An international team of ecologists and economists concluded that ALL of the world’s ocean fisheries will collapse by 2048 unless we take a new direction.
Now more than ever, consumers like you who promote choices for healthy oceans are being called to “take action” on the part of ocean conservation.
“It’s imperative that consumers and businesses alike use their buying power to expand the market for seafood from sustainable sources,” says Mike Sutton, director for the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Center for the Future of the Oceans.
