The downside to seafood

The downside to seafood

Fish might be healthier than meat, but that doesn’t mean it’s more sustainable.  Drift gillnets, trawling, and other indiscriminate fishing methods are reducing our fishery populations at an alarming rate.  Plus there are all the whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles, and birds that die from getting accidentally caught.

This article has a link at the end to guidelines for choosing safe seafood.  I’m giving it a look, since I’m pretty curious about it.  After all, I don’t have the time or the fishing skills to go to Lake Erie and catch my dinner myself. 😉
