I recently came across the Monterrey Bay Aquarium's website on issues related to the overfishing of the oceans, and was stunned by a lot of what I read. I supposed I always assumed that eating fish, any fish, was ecologically superior to meat or fowl, but overfishing, by-catch, and environmental damage are crushing the supplies of fish in the ocean.
I recommend everyone have a look at this website--it's full of great information written by experts in the field. And what's better is it's not just doom and gloom, but rather there are great guides on selecting fish from sustainable sources and suggestions for alternatives to unsound choices.
Oh wow, she lives!
