Wild-Caught Seafood: Health Benefits and
Sustainable Eating - Roxana Ehsani, MS RD

Fish and seafood are excellent lean protein sources without any of the saturated fats of meat. Introducing more seafood into your diet may yield numerous health and nutrition benefits. Seafood is also better than meat as it lowers the risks of heart disease, stroke, and several cancers associated with consuming meat. For seafood lovers, it can be hard to know which fish to eat because 90% of global marine fish stocks are now fully exploited or overfished.

So what does it mean to eat seafood that is both wild and sustainable?
How can you know if you are buying fish that is sustainable?
