Looks like a great site to find out more on sustainable seafood and much more. - DG

Seafood Watch

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program helps consumers and businesses make choices for healthy oceans. Our recommendations indicate which seafood items are "Best Choices," "Good Alternatives," and which ones you should "Avoid."

Seafood Watch raises consumer awareness through our pocket guides, website, mobile applications and outreach efforts. We encourage restaurants, distributors and seafood purveyors to purchase from sustainable sources.

Seafood Watch recommendations are science-based, peer reviewed, and use ecosystem-based criteria. Since 1999, we've distributed tens of millions of pocket guides, our iPhone application has been downloaded more than 70,000 times, and we have close to 200 partners across North America, including the two largest food service companies in the U.S.

I finally looked through this. It was pretty educational. I had thought that farmed was always better than wild-caught, but it isn't so simple, as some wild-caught is actually sustainable. When buying fish at a store it is easier to determine its source, but in restaurants it is more challenging. I've recently gotten to like sushi and with some types I don't actually know what type of fish it is.
