How Eating More Jellyfish And Less Fish Could Save The Planet

Posted by in category: food

I didn’t even know we could eat jellyfish! 😃

According to a new study conducted by scientists at the University of Queensland, Australia, we should eat more jellyfish and less fish if we want to save the planet.

The research, published in Nature Communications, suggests increasing our jellyfish consumption worldwide to protect threatened fish species and guard marine conservation efforts. IUCN figures show that fishing is an ongoing threat to 96% of threatened fish species and the only constant threat for some.

Globally, up to 91 threatened fish species, including Atlantic horse mackerel, haddock, and bigeye tuna, are legally caught on an industrial scale. Approximately 15% of these species are then traded internationally, primarily for consumption in Europe.
