Very few restaurant buyers and consumers check sustainability guides before they purchase seafood. Only 21 percent of restaurant operators and 16 percent of consumers consult sustainability guidelines before purchasing seafood, Datassential found. 

Rodriguez said the low percentage of restaurant buyers checking sustainability guides is surprising “because sustainability and sourcing have gotten to be so important.” 

“What that might be telling us is that they rely on their suppliers to have sustainable practices. A typical restaurant operator doesn’t have a lot of time to do that research on their own.”
