Members of Greenpeace staged a demonstration in downtown Auckland to Wednesday to launch a report outlining its view of the future of the New Zealand seafood industry.

The campaign group wants supermarkets to assure customers that their seafood comes from a sustainable source.

Campaigner Karli Thomas said many fisheries are in trouble with some stocks fished to the point of collapse.
