Hi I also am concerned about where the fish I eat was produced, what is safe and what is a sustainable fish. and also what about other seafood like shrimp. I saw AN ARTICLE A FEW DAYS AGO ABOUT sea life by the millions dieing because of a lack of O2 in the water will that damage the quality of the fish
I have gotten concerned lately about the contaminants in fish. I also am VERY careful about buying fish (even wild caught) that has been packaged or processed in China. I find it hard to buy wild caught fish which has not been to China before getting to me! I used to eat tilapia quite often but do not eat it anymore unless I can get it from Whole Foods or somewhere like that which has its own tilapia farms with strict standards. I mostly eat wild caught salmon (again being careful to make sure it hasn't been to China).
Good Eats recently did a great ep about fish and eating the sustainable ones. Did several recipes for trout -- something I've always avoided because a lot of places serve it whole and I don't like my dinner looking back at me.
Gave the same warnings about farm raised salmon as others have. Just not a good idea. Drat it all. So it's wild caught and sustainable.
What concerns you most about eating fish? Contaminants? Environmental impact?
I don't eat beef/chicken because of the hormones and antibiotics, so I have the same concerns about fish. Consequently, I try to stick with wild caught. I worry too about depleting certain species of fish, so I try to stick with the sustainable ones...unfortunately, this means I had to give up Orange Roughy, one of my favs.
