Seafood Choices

Welcome to The Fish List

You have the power to choose fish that are better for the environment and for you.

Each of us has been witness to the ecological impact that overfishing and destructive fishing practices can have on world fisheries like Chilean sea bass, orange roughy, and Atlantic trawled cod. Fish farming can be a welcome alternative to depleting wild fisheries, but farming certain species such as Atlantic salmon can pose its own set of environmental problems.

But, there is good news. There are plenty of great tasting, ocean-friendly seafood choices available. You can make a difference by choosing seafood caught or farmed in a way that minimizes harm to the ocean creatures and the environment. By recognizing that all seafood is not created equal, you can begin to make choices that are good for you and better for the planet.

The Fish List is a fast, easy-to-use tool that helps you make the best possible seafood choices.
