So Many Fishes In the Sea

I've been very busy at school, a condition that's likely to persist for awhile.  I'll be posting less frequently until things quiet down a bit.

 ___________________________

If you're like me, you may find the vast amount of food and nutrition information out there to be a mixed blessing.  You can learn about almost anything, but there's a lot to wade through and what you find is often inconsistent. 

Fish is a perfect example.  We're told that we should eat lots of it because it's such a great source of important omega-3 fatty acids.  Other sources tell us that we should limit our consumption because of mercury contamination, unsustainable fishing practices, and already-depleted fisheries.   What's a girl to do?


In this particular case, the good folks at the Monterey Bay Aquarium do the homework for you.  Their website provides a geographically targeted guide to which species are okay to eat and which should be avoided.  You just click on your area on the map and out pops a printable wallet size guide to what you can safely buy.  Simple, reliable and easy!
