when i was in university, i did research on farmed salmon.....it totally turned me off eating it ever again. i love salmon though, so it is so hard to have to pay the higher prices for non farmed salmon. MYTURN11, you mentioned that you will see if you can eat sardines because you were not sure if you would like them. i would say that if you can buy the small sardines, not the bigger ones, and then take two of them that have been cleaned and sandwich them together with a spice mixture of your favorite spices, some olive oil, and some finely chopped fresh parsley/cilantro mix ( i cut these up and mix together and keep in freezer for when i need them so they stay fresh) and then dip in some flour or cornmeal what you like, even bread crumbs, and then fry them up until crisp. maybe it would work in oven too, but might take longer to do. then what you do is after it is cooked, you take out the little backbone piece off each side of the patty (cause its two fish sandwiched together) and then eat. i like to eat it with bread, but i know that is not so healthy for a diet. it is really good that way and the only way i will eat sardines. SWEETDIXIE66, you can try that recipe above, and also what i like that is a bit different from the regular baked or barbequed fish is to take some halibut flilets and fry in a bit of unsalted butter until cooked and a bit crispy. then with the same pan that the fishy butter is in, i put a few almond halves with no skin (just boil them for 3 minutes and the skins will peel right off when cooled) and fry those almonds in that same pan i cooked the fish in. then i sprinkle over the fish. really yummy! also, my mom taught me a great way to cook crab! you put about 1 inch of water in a large pot, like the big one you would cook spaghetti in or something, and then some sea salt sprinkled in, a lot of fresh garlic cut up finely, and about 1 cup of butter. ya it is a lot of butter, but you don't end up eating it all, it just helps for the way it will be cooked. and then add your crab (fill the pot with about 2kg of crab) and then bring to a boil with a clear lid on the pot. you let it boil hard and the butter mixed with the water and garlic will start to bubble and foam up so that it rises above the crab meat. do not take the lid off. let it cook steaming like that for a few minutes until the crab is cooked, i do it for about 7 minutes or so. then take the lid off when done and remove the crab and eat. most of the butter will be left in the water that remains, so you are not eating too unhealthy, but the best part is that you don't have to dip it in anything! the butter and garlic flavour gets infused into the crab! i love it.
Wellllll....mmmmmm....let me see. I'm 63, my mother is 88 and father 87. We camped a month at a time all my childhood on Crab Orchard lake in Southern Illinois. My dad "hogged" for huge catfish and I would say we ate our weight in fried fish....bass, blue gill, crappie and catfish mainly; deep fried in Crisco with a mixture of yellow cornmeal and flour...(yummmm!) I guess only time will tell, but our skin is still clear and we don't light up when they shine the black light on us...so I guess it will all be..... okie dokie. Bon appetite. xo MaryAnn

I think the "worst" list is just that those fish are not as high in Omega 3s. So you just have to eat MORE of the worst fish to equal the percentage of O3s in one piece of the fattier fish.
I love salmon any kind. MISTERJ521 you have the right idea. Google it before buying. Only thing is when I am at the grocery store shopping for the week and checking out the sales that may be hard. I'll try it using my phone.

Why aren't Shrimp, Lobster and other shell-fish list on either good or bad sides.
After doing some more research I found this site: http://www.fishonline.org/advice/eat http://www.fishonline.org/advice/avoid/
Some types of fish are on both lists, depending on the source.
Personally, I buy my fish (same goes for meat) from a specialist (fishmonger) so I know the sea-bass that I buy has been line-caught off the coast nearby - not farmed; not trawled.

I would like to add my opinion because I live in beautiful Wisconsin where fishing is almost a religion. Most fishing folk around here are careful about what types of fish to go for and which ones that are "catch and release" for conservation and sportsman-like reasons. For instance few fisher people would save bass. What I missed in this article was information on some of those local/native fish to lots of we country folk, such as; blue gills, perch, trout, northern pike, bullheads, croppie, walleye, etc. I don't believe for a second that we hurt the environment by catching these by hand (not professionally). So many people don't seem to take into account the management done at the state government level to protect and help flourish the fish and other wildlife populations. I ceratainly agree that some of the large scale fishing (and in some cases I use that term loosely) is beastly and cruel. Me sitting on the bank of the Mississippi River with one of the little ones in my family has no resemblance to that.
i've never heard of ORANGE ROUGHY being on a bad list-WHY is it?

I don't know why Grouper is on the worst fish. I love it.

I know fried catfish would be bad but an ole country boy has to have some good fish once in awhile. Need more info as to how bad.
