New York teenagers identify weak link in seafood chain
For anyone who missed it there was a good post in the blog two weeks ago on how to choose sustainable seafood. However, this article from The New York Times (hat tip CC) suggests that about one out of every four fish you eat isn’t the kind of fish you thought it was. It could even be an endangered species. Sort of like finishing a meal at a Chinese restaurant and finding this ominous note in your fortune cookie: “That was not chicken.”
I use a simple surefire method. I don’t eat ocean fish. That fits somewhere in the middle of the food purity pyramid between veal and dead-and-down fruit. I am also of the opinion that I should keep my choices personal. I’m not referring to the above article, which is important and educational.
