Eat Green | Garlic Anchovy Butter Recipe

Eat Green, Southern African Green Listed Sustainable Seafood Recipe. Years of commercial fishing harvesting seafood from the wild at rates faster than natural populations can recover in Southern African waters place many seafood species at risk.

SASSI’s classification of fish labeled with a green, orange, or red: 
Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative color code means eat green, orange, stop and think and red no way.
SASSI, eat green

Eat green!
Green listed fish is the group from which people are encouraged to choose from as it contains the best managed most sustainable choices available to consumers. 

Orange, stop and think.
Orange listed fish consumers are encouraged to consider the implications of these choices as an increased demand for these could compromise a sustainable supply. 

No way!
Red are species of fish you should never buy since this group includes unsustainable species as well as those that are illegal to sell in South Africa.
