Background information and definitions
Fish and seafood certification (e.g. ecolabels) may reduce consumer demand for fisheries that threaten marine and freshwater mammals. For example, ‘dolphin-safe’ ecolabels have been used widely on tuna products from fisheries that claim to use practices that reduce dolphin bycatch. However, the accuracy of such labels and the motivations for using them have been questioned, and greater regulation may be required (Ward 2008).
