seafoodwatch.org

I must have seafood on the brain today. Last night, I watched Deadliest Catch for the first time ever. Fascinating – it’s easy to see why fishers have the number one deadliest job in America.

Which leads me to my next seafood point – usually I bring my lunch to work, but today I decided eat in the cafeteria. A rare treat - if you consider eating in your workplace cafeteria a “treat”. Pan-fried tilapia with wasabi sauce was on the menu.  I love fish.  I certainly don't eat enough of it these days.

Which leads me to my final seafood point: Do you know about seafoodwatch.org? You can download their 2009 pocket guide that can “help you choose ocean-friendly seafood wherever you live or travel”. Just print it (or access via mobile), put it in your wallet and refer to it the next time you are eating seafood. The guide classifies seafood as: Best Choices, Good Alternatives, & Avoid.

By the way, tilapia (farmed) is classified as a “Best Choice”. I didn’t know that before; it’s good information to have.  And if you're sushi inclined (I'm not...I wish I was cooler), enjoy the sushi guide.  Bon appetit!

It's good to know that there are a lot of apps and information out there about what to buy. I just got the "seafood watch" application for iPhone. It's great! Now I mostly eat wild salmon and cod...no more sea bass at Quang!

I love Deadliest Catch. We watch back episodes constantly on Netflix.
