The Environmental Outlook: Sustainable Seafood
There’s a very good chance that the fish you order at a restaurant or serve at home was not caught in U.S. waters. About 90 percent of the seafood we consume is imported and much of this is produced on seafood farms.

For this month’s Environmental Outlook: new efforts to meet the growing world demand for sustainable seafood.
