Go Fish!

Many months ago, I told you about the importance about eating fish.

I also told you about eating WILD SALMON, and how difficult it was for me to find!
Well look what I found in Wally World, that was not priced to the moon (like in the ritzy grocery stores)!

This summer, I also had the pleasure of getting a pocket seafood guide.

The guide is sponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The guide is a mini-accordion pocket guide that lists the fish which are safe to eat for you and the environment. 

The fish will contain low mercury levels and are obtained from methods of fishing that are not depleting the fish population or harmful to other sea creatures.

The guide is separated into three categories: red, yellow, and green.

Seafood choices under the red category should be avoided, the yellow category can be eaten in moderation, and the green category should be the FOCUS of your consumption.

You should make sure that you have an updated version of the guide for your region whenever you buy fish.

I currently live in the Southeasten portion of the country, so the focus of my fish diet should include the fish I first told you we eat regularly -
CATFISH (US farm-raised), TILAPIA (US farm-raised, WILD SALMON (Alaskan).

Please go HERE to download and print your own pocket guide for seafood. 

You will help sustain the fish population and help your health!

Glad you posted about this. Canned Salmon (wild/Alaskan caught) has actually been found to be better to eat than canned tuna! I am now off to print my own pocket guide.
