The Marine Conservation Society has announced the release of its latest edition of the “Good Fish Guide” for fish consumed in the United Kingdom.
The program offers a rating for the different fish species consumed in the U.K., with the “Best Choice” being fish that offer the best environmental impact, while the “Best to Avoid” category highlights fish that is a problem, either due to low population numbers or the result of the catching method and so forth.
Highlights of Best Choice awards include:
- Pot caught Langoustines from the West coast of Scotland.
- North Sea Haddock Caught by otter trawl, seine net, or longline.
- Cornwall Hake, caught by gill or fixed net.
Highlights of Best to Avoid include:
