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.
