A project called “Cayman Sea Sense” wants consumers to know what fish to eat, and which to avoid.

An initiative of the National Trust, the Cayman Sea Sense seafood guide, divides seafood into three categories: best choices, good alternatives, and those to avoid.

The guide also lists restaurants that have pledged to only serve sustainable fish.

National Trust Environmental Programmes Manager Catherine Childs told Cayman 27 they can combat the effects of overfishing through education.

“We have more people here, and more people eating fish, and our fishing techniques have improved. So definitely we are having an effect on fish populations, however the marine parks have helped a lot, and people, consumers are becoming more aware,” said Ms. Childs.

The Cayman Sea Sense seafood guide lists locally culled lionfish, an invasive predator, as by far the top choice for sustainability.

Other pelagic species like tuna, mahi, and wahoo also made the list of good alternatives.

But grouper, parrotfish, shark, turtle, lobster, conch, and whelk all made the list of fish to avoid.
