Save the fish. Eat more clams.
That's one of the messages in this fascinating article on How to eat seafood sustainably. The advice includes...
- Eat less of the big fish such as salmon, tuna, swordfish and sharks, which are the most vulnerable populations.
- Eat lower on the marine food chain, including smaller species that are less endangered such as clams, oysters, mollusks, anchovies, and sardines.
- Choose fish caught by line, pot, or net (or other artisanal methods) and avoid fish caught in massive trawl nets which pull everything out of the ocean whether it is the intended catch or not.
