I like a Patagonia tooth fish (a.k.a. Chilean sea bass) as much as the next girl, maybe even more, but it’s time for me to be more responsible with my seafood selections. Luckily, the Environmental Defense Fund makes that ridiculously easy by providing both a PDF and a mobile-web viewable version of their Seafood Selector (get both versions here). I didn’t manage to completely avoid farmed salmon when I had sushi yesterday, but I promise to do better. A story on Fresh Air last week reminded me that EDF provides these pocket guides. You can still listen to the story.
Stick to small fish that grow back easily (sardines, anyone?). You can still eat salmon as long as it’s wild caught. Yum!
