October is National Seafood
Month, a topic of particular
importance to the coastal com-
munity. Everyone should enjoy the
bounties of the sea this month, but also
be aware of the choices you make when
it comes to seafood, and whether those
choices are sustainable.
Sustainable seafood is seafood that
is caught or farmed with methods that
look out for the future – methods that
are ocean-friendly and keep the liveli-
hoods of fishermen and the long-term
health of fish populations in mind. If you
want information about safe, sustainable
options in the areak, visit the Monterey
Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch website.
They offer printable cards that can help
you make responsible decisions at the fish
When shopping for seafood, do your
best to make healthy choices for the
ocean and for future generations. And be
sure to keep an eye out for more news
about the Solutions To Avoid Red Tide
(START) Seafood Savvy program, coming
to local restaurants this season
