This story today reminded me of a story I heard on Living On Earth a while back regarding consumer groups which track fish species and recommend to consumers which are considered in danger and which are plentiful. They talked about conscious restaurants which have stopped serving certain fish, yay! Which brings me to Seafood Choices – their SeaSense database tracks what a number of organizations have to say about different fish. Chilean Sea Bass, for example, is discouraged by the National Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Environmental Defense. Good resource to check before you head to the market. Bonus: the story in the SF Gate has a list of fish it’s ok to eat, ones to avoid, as well as recipes at the end.
