5 easy, sustainable plant based seafood fish alternatives you can make at home in response to Netflix documentary Seaspiracy. These are my best vegan fish alternatives for anyone wanting to make a difference and still enjoy great flavours they love.

Seaspiracy Netflix: Plant Based Seafood Recipes for Ocean Justice

Netflix documentary Seaspiracy does just that. The fishing industry from catch to sale is shrouded in concealment. The truth is fishing-industry-caused ocean plastics, the bycatch of precious ocean species, the overfishing and destruction of our own environment are just a few of the malpractices of the fishing world, according to Seaspiracy.

So let's do something. I decided I wanted to put together some vegan fish alternatives and seafood recipes to help those of you that are either fully transitioned and love plant based foods or those that love traditional flavours but want to make a more sustainable switch. Look no further.
