GOT MERCURY?

We’ve teamed up with Turtle Island Restoration Network to launch our “Got Mercury?” campaign, with the aim of educating Mexican citizens about the health risks associated with eating shark meat. We want to engage with the public, and provide them with the education and tools they need to make informed decisions.

banner-ig-got-mercury-2-1 Mercury is a highly toxic element that occurs naturally, in very small quantities, in the environment. As a result of our urban and industrialised processes, we rapidly increase the amount of mercury in the environment, which eventually ends up in our oceans. Many processes contribute to the increase of mercury in the water, but once it’s in the water it’s entered the food chain.

TO KNOW MORE ….VISIT OUR CAMPAIGN PAGE (CLIK HERE)

In Mexico, 23,000 tons of shark meat are consumed annually. The meat is widely sold in supermarkets across the country but is labeled as with simply, “shark steak,” “cazon,” .

Because of this, Mexican consumers may not be aware that they’re eating shark at all, let alone know about the health risks associated with this food. As some shark species contain high levels of mercury, it’s absolutely essential that consumers are able to make informed decisions about what’s on sale
