What’s sustainable one day may not be the next, so download the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch app to stay abreast. Alaskan salmon and Pacific cod are usually smart picks.

From the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). Fisheries using these identifiers are independently monitored. However, labels like “fair trade” and “dolphin safe” don’t necessarily address all issues, says Jon Corsiglia, the U.S. media manager for the MSC.
Buy Locally Caught
And ask if that is unclear. This usually lowers the footprint of transporting seafood.
