October is National Seafood Month. Do you know if the seafood you eat is safe for you and the oceans? Is it in danger of being over-fished? Is it high in toxic chemicals like mercury? Go to blueocean.org’s seafood choices page to type in your favorite seafood and find out if it’s sustainably fished and low in toxic chemicals. They also list ocean-friendly substitutes for some of the threatened species of fish.
Get a sustainable seafood card to carry with you when you eat out or give it to the
person in your house who does the shopping.
