Abundance of the Sea: Choosing Fish

Today's topic: consuming fish that is not only good for you but is also good for the environ- ment. No horror stories on bad fishing practices, please; the best thing you can do is to choose wisely when you buy fish to eat. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a handy pocket guide to seafood, customized for the Midwest, which you can print out, cut , fold, and put in your wallet or purse. (In the event you don't live in the Midwest, click here for a full list of pocket guides to seafood.)

It's hot out, and all that cutting and folding is probably enough work for one July afternoon, but in case you're ambitious, you can learn more about making choices for healthy oceans here.

I suppose recent news made me think about which fish is better to eat. Can you believe that no one in the mainstream media (following Al Gore's daughter's wedding which featured sea bass) has picked up on the fact that there is no farmed Chilean Sea Bass contrary to the answers when green-advocate Al Gore was questioned?
