Ocean Wise's recommendations are based on four criteria.
An Ocean Wise recommended species is:
1. Abundant and resilient to fishing pressures.
2. Well managed with a comprehensive management plan based on current research.
3. Harvested in a method that ensures limited by catch on
non-targeted and endangered species.
4. Harvested in ways that limit damage to marine or aquatic habitats and negative interactions with other species.
