DUTCH astronaut André Kuipers has shown his support for the Marine Stewardship Council while on board the International Space Station (ISS).
Kuipers posted a photo of a floating can of MSC certified Alaska salmon to Flickr.com with the message: “Lots of ocean, but there's still overfishing and destruction of marine life. Sustainable fish is an alternative. Even in space we eat MSC-certified fish.”
André also writes about eating MSC certified sustainable fish in his blog, saying: “Talking of fish, I received a large supply of MSC certified fish in my bonus container. Even in space it is possible to eat sustainable fish. The oceans are large, even when seen from space, but many species of fish are still overfished. We must be careful with our planet and its limited resources.”
