June 8th is recognized by the U.N. as World Oceans Day. Observed annually since 2008, this day is set to honor the world's oceans and to celebrate the products the ocean provides and for marine life. While it may seem contradictory to recognize sea life by eating it, one of goals besides conservation is a respect for the oceans' bounty by practicing sustainable eating whenever possible.
To that end, here are a few suggestions from leading marine life authorities on how we can make seafood choices that balance the healthy, and delicious, benefits of eating seafood with a recognition of resource limitations. It is provided by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch which produces guides to assist with your seafood choices and is continually updated. (http://www.seafoodwatch.org). Following are a few seafood items from the Best Choice list (http://www.seafoodwatch.org/-/m/sfw/pdf/guides/mba-seafoodwatch-national-guide.pdf?la=en)
