Seafood Watch on Your Cell Phone

Fish and seafood are good for us, but several species contain toxic contaminants and certain harvesting methods threaten wild populations.

So take some help from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program and make choices that are good for you and good for the environment.

Seafood Watch ranks seafood species according to sustainability based on where and how they were caught. It also alerts readers to dwindling populations and health advisories regarding toxic contaminants issued by the Environmental Defense Fund.

Browse their newly updated online database for the latest information on which species to eat and which ones to avoid. You can also print a pocket guide specific to your location or get the Seafood Watch app for your iPhone or Android so you can search while you shop and read restaurant menus.
