Americans are eating more fish than ever, but the fish counter can be a confusing place, even for the most educated seafood lover. Many ask, is this species overfished, or how much mercury is in this tuna?
To help consumers make the most informed seafood choices while shopping or eating out, Environmental Defense Fund offers several ways for the conscientious consumer to get comprehensive health and environmental information about their favorite kinds of fish.
The Seafood Selector Web site provides consumers with recommendations for more than 200 popular seafood choices. Shoppers can easily access the best substitutes for their favorite, but overfished choices, as well as how often they can safely eat fish like tuna or swordfish. To download a printable wallet guide, visit edf.org/seafood. Consumers with Web-enabled phones can also access a mobile-friendly version of the guide at m.edf.org/seafood.
