Which fish?

Just discovered that The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a free easy-to-use fish eating guide that you can print or order copies of, or just view on line. There are different versions for specific parts of the country.

I enjoyed a filet of bluefish yesterday. I wasn't sure, at the time, whether it was an environmentally good choice. Now I see that it's on the "good alternatives" list, with an asterisk indicating that there are concerns about mercury contamination. Noted.

The very BEST choices for the northeast: Pacific halibut, Alaska wild pollock, Alaska wild salmon, US albacore tuna (troll, pole). These are rated "sustainable" to the Marine Stewardship Council standard .

I just love bluefish. A friend on the Cape fishes and has brought me freshly caught bluefish and sometimes bass. Totally heavenly.

Now all you need to do is actually TRAVEL to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Quite amazing in my book. Giant rooms whose walls are fish tanks filled by exotic fish creatures.

Maybe you can convince one of your letters to go with you (Z?)
