Good Fish, Bad Fish

Sorry, I can't copy the guide on this link. It's a pocket-sized seafood guide for the Northeast. You print it out & then fold it.

If you are buying seafood it recommends asking

• Where is the seafood from?
• Is it farmed or wild-caught?
• How was it caught?
If you’re not sure, choose something else.

You Have the Power. Your consumer choices make a difference. Buy seafood to support those fisheries and fish farms that are healthier for ocean wildlife and the environment. This is from the Monterrey Bay Aquarium.

Best Choices are abundant, well-managed and caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways. Good Alternatives are an option, but there are concerns with how they’re caught or farmed—or with the health of their habitat due to other human impacts. Avoid for now as these items are caught or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment.

I can do that. Many times it's even labeled at the fishmongers or in the grocery store. So read it, already!
