Seafood Watch: Fishy Issues


Besides asking the wait person if your fish is fresh or frozen, you might want to also ask if it's part of an endangered species.

From California's famed Monterey Bay Aquarium, this site is devoted to exploring that issue, from listing seafood that you should and should not purchase, the pros and cons of fish farming, the question of discarded species, and other environmental impact questions about our increasingly fragile oceans.
