Lynne's Favorite Guides to Buying Safe, Sustainable Fish and Seafood

It can be difficult these days keeping track of environmental and health concerns relating to fish and seafood so you can make wise choices at the seafood counter and in restaurants. Here are three websites Lynne keeps bookmarked for the latest information on what's safe and sustainable and what is not:

www.seafoodwatch.org: a site maintained by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Download and print a copy of their pocket guide and keep it in your wallet or handbag.

www.blueocean.org: you can text message their FishFone from here. Text a number, enter the name of the fish, and in seconds they give you a short rundown of the fish's environmental and health information as well as alternative suggestions.

www.environmentaldefense.org: among a lot of other issues, they have a fish health alert list for possible contamination problems, a long list of fish that are safe to eat, and details about the benefits of eating fish.
