Eat Sustainable Fish

You want to add more seafood into your diet; you know fish and shellfish are healthy foods. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish are particularly beneficial for heart health.

But you’re also concerned about the natural environment. You have heard of overfishing. Over a third of fish stocks worldwide are overfished.  You don’t want to eat species whose populations are threatened. You’ve heard of farmed fish, but how healthy are they compared to wild-caught types?

So many species of edible fish and other seafood to choose from! What are the most environmentally responsible choices?

Here’s help figuring it all out. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has created FishWatch, a database of sustainable food fish and other seafood.

At this website you will find information about various types of seafood, both wild and farmed. NOAA provides many facts about sustainable fishing and aquaculture, both in the US and globally. You can learn how to buy, handle, and cook seafoods safely. As a bonus, you can even get easy recipes for your favorite seafood from NOAA.

Enjoy your Sole Meuniere or Spicy Redfish Tacos.
