SASSI, eat green
SASSI’s classification of fish labeled with a green, orange, or red: 

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 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.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.
