Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

An Eco Friendly Look at Our Endangered Fish Species

Love eating fish? So do I.  But perhaps we need to rethink which fish species we order next time we dine out.  Some eco-friendly chefs are making informed decisions to guide their menu choices.  Amazingly, not based on the almighty dollar.

I thought this ScienCentral video provided an insightful look at whether we’re overfishing select fish species, causing them to become endangered,  and what we can do about it.
