Image placeholder title

Protecting our ocean fish is important to me as a chef and a mom. I try to make smart decisions about my seafood purchases. I'm sharing theMonterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Pocket Guide.

Pick a region and then download the shopping guide to pack in your grocery sacks. For NY the best choices are: Artic Char, Barramundi, Catfish, Clams, Mussels, Oysters, Cobia, Dungeness Crabs, Croaker, Pacific Hallibut, Spiny Lobster, Alaskan Wild Salmon, Farmed Bay, Scallops, Squid, Striped Bass, Swordfish, Tilapia, Trout, Tuna and Skipjack.

Information is power. There is even an iPhone app to take your list with you!
