Best websites for picking sustainable seafood

The Blue Ocean Institute, the Environmental Defense Fund, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium provide information on the sustainability and safety of different types of seafood.

Blueocean.org catalogues more than 100 commonly eaten species, each marked with a “bright, easy-to-understand icon” that indicates whether it’s been overfished or remains sustainable. Run by the Blue Ocean Institute, the site also has a downloadable guide to eco-friendly sushi.

EDF.org features the Environmental Defense Fund’s online Seafood Selector, which measures the sustainability, safety, and dietary value of 62 types of seafood. Each description includes a USDA Nutritional Information chart as well as notes on the risk of mercury or PCB contamination.

Montereybayaquarium.org offers a “fish-by-fish list” of data on the safety and sustainability of 80 types of sea creatures. The site also includes downloadable pamphlets with information about which species in different regions of the country are overfished.
