Seafood Sources

Many people eat seafood whether it is fish for Omega-3 or a fancy lobster dinner.  A lot times we pick things up at the grocery store without thinking.  In the past I wrote about the Seafood Watch program and how you could use that to help you pick seafood.  Now, Greenpeace has launched a survey (PDF)that monitors the grocery stores to determine which ones are mindful of where they get their inventory.  Another section let's you search grocery stores by state along with other information.

Seafood is not excluded from the industrial food system and just like the rest of it we don't know where anything is coming from or how it gets to us.  Tools like this help consumers stay informed and make better choices.
