Oceans Alive

Maybe you've all been as confused as I am about eating fish: Which fish are safe to eat? Wild caught vs. farmed? Mercury, PCB's, Omega Threes, Oh My! Well, wonder no more Friends of the Briny Deep. There is now a website that can help us sort it all out. It is called Oceans Alive and is sponsored by the Environmental Defense Network.
If the link doesn't work, then just copy this address into your web browser: http://www.oceansalive.org/home.cfm
Happy Fishing!!

Thanks for helping to spread the word! There's a lot of healthy, ocean-friendly seafood out there, and people appreciate knowing what they are.

We also have a pocket version of the best/worst lists that people can print out and carry with them -- it's here if you'd like to download it: http://www.environmentaldefense.org/documents/1980_pocket_seafood_selector.pdf
