The Seafood “Dirty Dozen” Guide

The fish stand in Lam's Seafood Market

On this blog, I try not to “recreate the wheel”. There are some fantastic resources out there, and I love finding them and putting them “in one place” here at Organic Eater, so you can reference them easily. So, when I came across this clean seafood resource (again) this week, I knew it could be very helpful to the omnivores and pescatarians out there who want to “eat clean” as much as possible. If you’re like me, summer means eating more fish! There is usually a summer beach trip or two since we live near the Carolina beaches, so of course that means eating fresh catch on those trips! This resource can help us make better decisions about clean eating when buying fish, due to the farming practices and mercury content, similar to the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list for pesticides on produce. There is also a wallet version you can print to keep with you if you like. Enjoy and eat clean!

www.foodandwaterwatch.org  will take you to the website, and you can search for the “Smart Seafood Guide 2012” if you want that printable. This website is full of extremely helpful info, so check it out!
