How to Find Sustainable Seafood
For those of you that might be wondering about the sustainability of sea bass, I highly suggest checking out this chart from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch site. They make an app that you can download and just check in the grocery store to see what seafood you can buy that makes less of an impact on the ocean. With this app and the recommendations of your local fishmonger, you’ll be able to find great fish that’s environmentally sustainable.
