I always get confused by this and end up not buying anything! So can someone remind me- what is the seafood to avoid completly and what is ok to buy and eat both for human health and enviromental health? thanks!
Check out the Monterey Bay Aquarium website (www.montereybayaquarium.org) and look at their seafood watch page. They have a downloadable pocket/wallet sized seafood guide for the healthiest, most sustainable seafood. So you could take it with you to the grocery store... Wild Alaskan seafood is usually a pretty safe bet. Salmon is very healthy and my kids really like it.
This is another site you can check: http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/fish/seafood/guide/
They apparently try to balance health, environmental pressures, and socio-economic benefits to the fishing communities. They also have good advice for avoiding putting too much pressure on popular sources of 'safe' seafood.
