Daily Tip: Feb 20, 2008

A great resource for making healthy choices for the ocean when you purchase seafood is the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch site. Search for your favorite fish, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium will let you know if it's safe to eat.

If you are a pregnant woman or a parent with small children, the government advises you and your children to eat smart to reduce mercury. Take the Sierra Club's quiz on Mercury, then get a handy guide that you can print to carry with you.

If you are not near a computer and still want to make sustainable seafood choices, you can now text the Blue Ocean Institutes's Fish Phone. Simply text FISH and the name of the fish to 30644, and you'll receive a message back with information on whether the fish is safe to eat.
