Infographic: Sustainable Seafood

If you’re confused about whether or not you should be eating fish, you’re not alone. On the one hand people are saying that fish is packed with omega-3 fats that are shown to reduce inflammation and risk for cardiovascular disease. On the other hand, people are saying that fish can be full of heavy metal toxins, such as mercury, which can be detrimental to your health. To top it all off, there is a real sustainability concern with seafood as some species of fish are being over-fished to the point of potential extinction. No wonder you’re confused when you get to the fish counter. We would be too!

The thing is, not all fish are the same. Some are rich in omega-3 fats, others are not. Some are high in mercury, others are not. And you guessed it, some are sustainable, and others are not. The trick is to stay informed about which fish you should be eating and which fish you should be avoiding. We’re here to help you. Take a look at our breakdown below so that the next time you’re at your supermarket or a restaurant, you’ll know what to choose.
