  • Yes, I do. Not every fish was affected by the oil spill.

  • I still eat fush, somtimes you just got to take the chance on something you like. We take chances on our food everyday... for example on the butter I bought the other day read on the label "from cows not treated with the growth hormone rbST."
    So have you also thought about the butter you use?

  • Just don't eat any from those areas. I live in Wa and we have plenty of fresh salmon and halibiut that are petroleum free, I wouldn't buy any gulf shrimp for a while though.

  • You can get a guide to mercury in fish here: http://www.nrdc.org/health/effects/mercury/walletcard.pdf


    Whatever you do, stay away from farmed fish; they are highly toxic and have little nutritional value.


    Honestly, you are best off with a whole foods based diet.

  • i would say it is but then my son doesn't even like sea food... but i'd still would... they wouldn't give us something that would harm our children.

  • Well, we catch our own on the West Coast so I think it is ok.
