Check Out This Site for Helpful Information on Seafood


The Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey California has a program called Seafood Watch Program that’s been around since 1997. They started the program in response to visitors asking how to make better seafood choices.

There is lots of information on their site about seafood and your health with links to many other sites that are helpful depending on how much detail you are interested in.

One of the things that I use and recommend to clients is their printable seafood guide for each region of the United States where you are buying or eating fish. And they update the list every 3 months to keep up with what’s happening in the seafood world.

They list the Best, Good Alternative and Avoid choices with notations of which to limit eating due to concerns about mercury or other contaminants. They’ve even added a sushi guide!

Use the guide to check out all your favorites. Then use it to help you decide on a new fish to try and whether you want to ask the restaurant or store where a fish is from.

I keep my local list handy and when I travel, I get the list for that region.

Here’s the link to download your printable guide – just pick the region you’re interested in: Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Guide.

Now Seafood Watch Info at Your Fingertips on Your Mobile Devices!
Seafood Watch just added a free “App” for iPhone and iTouch that includes:

* Free, up-to-date recommendations at your fingertips
* Sushi guide lists fish by Japanese name as well as common market name
* Regional guides highlight the seafood that’s best in each area of the country”

Click here for their page where you can link to the download for your iPhone/iTouch and information on how to use the guide on other mobile devices.

PS I just loaded the App to my iTouch and it downloaded a complete copy of all the regions along with detailed info for each fish! It has a lot more detail than the printable page has room to provide. And once downloaded it doesn’t require being on the Internet to view it!

Now you’ll never be without everything you need!
