Seafood Watch

Click this link to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium's page for Seafood Recommendation guides.

Fish and other seafood will be listed in these categories:

Best Choices: Seafood in this category is abundant, well-managed and caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways.

Good Alternatives: These items 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: Take a pass on these items for now. They are caught or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment.

The Super Green List: A list of wild and farmed seafood that’s healthy for people and the oceans.

From the Seafood Watch site, you can download regional or nation guides for seafood choices or download applications for your mobile device.
