Are there any sustainable species of fish that we use for food?

    It depends on the definition of sustainable. Personally I’d argue farmed tilapia grown in recirculating systems are some of the most sustainable to eat. Tilapia eat plants rather than other fish, so feeding them doesn’t put pressure on wide fish populations and because they’re grown in closed facilities we don’t have to worry as much about them escaping into the wild or transmitting diseases to wild fish populations. Those are the problems normally associated with other fish farming operations. 

    I don’t know if there are any wild caught fish which are still harvested in a sustainable manner.
