The ‘Choose Wisely’ campaign is run by the Emirates Wildlife Society and the World Wild Fund For Nature to protect the future of UAE fisheries. In the UAE some species are being overfished beyond sustainable levels. Here are some tips from the campaign to help you choose the fish which are currently at sustainable levels. For more information, please visit www.choosewisely.ae

The ‘Choose Wisely’ Consumer Guide classifies fish into three categories based on the status of the stock:

Think again before ordering the following over-fished species: Hammour, Painted Sweetlips, Kingfish, Goldlined Seabream, White Spotted Spinefoot, Spangled Emperor, Snub Nose Emperor and Golden Trevally.

The following are a good choice but there’s better: Small Tooth Emperor, Long Tail Silver Biddy, King Solider Bream and Black Spot Snapper

Go for it! The following are not experiencing heavy fishing pressure: Orange Spotted Trevally, Two bar Seabream, Black Streaked Monocle Bream, Yellow Bar AngelFish, Pink Ear Emperor, Sordid Sweetlips and Ehrenbergs Snapper
