You may already consult your Seafood Watch card for the best choices in sustainable seafood. But there's more to consider than whether your dinner has been harvested in a way that doesn't harm the ocean - you'll also want to know whether it's harmful to your body.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium's new "Super Green List" highlights the seafood that is sustainably caught, low in contaminants and high in omega-3 fatty acids.
This season's super-powered picks:
- Albacore Tuna (troll- or pole-caught, from the U.S. or British Columbia)
- Freshwater Coho Salmon (farmed in tank systems, from the U.S.)
- Mussels (farmed)
- Oysters (farmed)
- Pacific Sardines (wild-caught)
- Pink Shrimp (wild-caught, from Oregon)
- Rainbow Trout (farmed)
- Salmon (wild-caught, from Alaska)
- Spot Prawns (wild-caught, from British Columbia)
