Love seafood but hate its environmental implications
? Well, fish fans rejoice; a new online seafood-restaurant guide, Fish2Fork
, launched on Monday. The site provides restaurant reviews and ratings based on the traditional criteria of ambiance, price, and taste, in addition to details about the restaurant’s seafood sustainability practices (or lack thereof). The purpose of Fish2Fork, rather than convincing people to stop eating fish, is to inform them about the impacts of overfishing and to provide sustainable options.
Fish2Fork lists restaurants in only a handful of states and the U.K., though they accept suggestions and plan to expand. If your favorite fish joint isn't yet on the list, check out Seafood Watch
, another resource for information about seafood sustainability. You can download and print a wallet guide
, then pull it out when you're in a restaurant to find out whether to order the fish or just stick with a salad.
