We recently wrote a series of posts about sustainable seafood, which we called a Week of Fish. Obviously a weeks worth of writing doesn't begin to cover it, so we thought we'd share a few other interesting articles that we've stumbled across since then:
- Cathy Erway writes for the L Magazine about the shortcomings of FreshDirect's sustainability rating system and the ways in which the language is potentially misleading to well-meaning consumers.
- Whole Foods steps up it's game with a new buying policy. Starting April 22, the mega-retailer will stop selling red-rated wild seafood.
- Last year, the Boston Globe did some impressive investigative journalism about fish fraud in supermarkets and high end restaurants. The resulting article gave way to countless puns about there being something fishy, but also to greater efforts towards regulation.
We still think the best bet is to get to know the fisherman that caught our fish. If you're based in New York, we make a few recommendations in our buyer's guide to sustainable seafood.
