Keep up with which fish are best to eat and which fish need to be protected
Seafood Watch Guides:
To support sustainable fisheries, groups such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium
have developed lists as to what seafood is best to choose and best to avoid. These lists are based
on the latest information from fisheries scientists and managers, and
help people make informed choices as to what fish are best to eat that are not
overfished, endangered, poorly managed, and whose harvest may despoil the ocean's environment.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a Seafood Watch Page
where you can view a Seafood Watch Chart and/or download a pdf file of their Seafood Watch pocket guide.
