To curb the threat posed by overfishing and destructive fishing practices on the marine environment, Greenpeace has compiled a list of 22 of the marine species that, for different reasons, should not be sold.
Some of the species that make up the list are among the most consumed, such as cod or tuna. The communities of these fish have decreased by 90% due to overfishing.
Other species on the list are monkfish, hake, sole and flounder, which are often fished with trawl nets. This method damages the seabed and is very inaccurate. Up to 70% of the catch can be of other species that die before being returned to the sea.

Also on the list are salmon and prawns, which are raised on fish farms. In this case, the pressure is on other smaller fish that are used to feed them.

The Maritime Cluster, the institution that integrates all sectors related to the sea in Spain, coincides in many of the species on the red list and adds others such as shark, marlin or eel, also in danger.
