13 Aug Overfishing – Responsible fish eating
Ending overfishing video to understand it easily.
Based on the source from enature. CleanBites will be mindful when choosing the type of fish it will serve.
We will start slowly and right now we will start with shrimp and squid.

Go-Go Fish — Why these fish are okay to eat:
Anchovies. Fast-growing; abundant.
Bluefish, Atlantic. Fast-growing; abundant.
Catfish, farmed. Fast-growing; herbivorous; raised in ponds.
Cod, Pacific. Abundant; well-regulated fishery.
Crayfish (crawfish, crawdad). Appropriately farmed.
Crab, Dungeness. Well-regulated fishery.
Herrings & sardines. Abundant in certain seas.
Halibut, Pacific (Alaskan). Abundant; well-regulated fishery.
Mahi-mahi (Dorado, Dolphinfish). Fast-growing; mature rapidly.
Mussels, farmed. Can be farmed without major environmental impact.
Oysters, farmed. May help clean waters; those raised in nets don’t disturb seabed.
Pollock, Pacific (Surimi, Krab). Not overfished, but fishery competes with declining northern (Steller) sea lions.
Prawns, California Spotted. Captured by trapping; no bycatch.
Salmon, wild (Alaskan and Californian). Many stocks sensibly managed.
Scallops, farmed. Abundant.
Shrimp, Atlantic Northern Pink. Abundant; captured without environmental damage.
Squid (calamari). Abundant; most die after one year.
Striped Bass, farmed. Inland ponds have little environmental impact.
Sturgeon, farmed. Controlled inland rearing ponds with little environmental impact.
Tilapia, farmed. Fast-growing; eat plants, not other fish.
Trout, farmed. Raised in freshwater ponds with little environmental impact.
Tuna, Pacific Albacore (Tombo Tuna). Well-regulated fishery causes little or no bycatch.
Tuna, Yellowfin (Ahi). Abundant; fairly well-managed fishery; “dolphin safe” labeling and monitoring program reduces dolphin kills.
