From shrimp and lobster to salmon and trout, restaurants and grocery stores offer an incredible variety of seafood. Some seafood is raised or caught in a healthy, sustainable way. However, much of it is not. Readers will discover how the seafood industry can damage aquatic habitats, cause populations of certain species to dwindle, and lead to the spread of disease. They will also learn how seafood can be raised and harvested responsibly and how to choose high-quality, sustainable fish and shellfish.
