Seafood Watch Launches its "Super Green" List—Good for You, Good for the Oceans
OCTOBER 2009Seafood Watch, a program of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, introduces its "Super Green" seafood list to help seafood lovers everywhere enjoy delicious seafood that's heart-healthy, low in contaminants and a Seafood Watch "Best Choice"—the best for the ocean environment.
Developed in collaboration with scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Environmental Defense Fund, the "Super Green" selections include items like wild-caught salmon, sardines and farmed mussels—all good for people and the planet.
"Our individual actions, small though they may seem, are contributing to a sea change that's making a big difference for the future of the oceans," said Aquarium Executive Director Julie Packard. "Choosing 'Super Green' seafood is a simple thing we can do to ensure thriving oceans for the future."
