Rating 4 (orange) should not be considered sustainable, and the fish is likely to have significant environmental issues associated with its production. While it may be from a deteriorating fishery, it may be one which has improved from a 5 rating, and positive steps are being taken. However, MCS would not usually recommend choosing this fish.
Fish to Eat are Rated 1 and 2 and Fish to Avoid are Rated 5.
