Do you eat seafood?

Do you eat seafood at all or do you worry about what is in the waters (mercury, toxins, etc)? Do you buy a certain kind of seafood such as wild as opposed to just regular store bought seafood from the deli etc?

Before I became veg, salmon was the last meat I gave up. The first I gave up was yellow fin tuna, I'd only eat albacore, but that was for ethical reasons. I gave up crab and lobster when I found out how horrible bottom feeders are for us. Then tuna and Predatorial fish when I learned about mercury.

I love sardines and any Mediterranean fish, I ate a lot of fish and I still do, it's the best food out there, just get wild fish and make sure it doesn't come from the pacific, look for orata, sardine, branzino...yummy!!!!

I like sushi and DH buys these prepared frozen fish things. Idk what they are, but he buys them and bakes them. They look like seasoned filets, but I'm not sure what type of fish.

I eat some. We do wild salmon about once a month. Not much else.

I didn't know to avoid it if it comes from the pacific! Is there a specific reason?

Uhhh...Fukshima???
It's still spewing tons of radiation daily. The problem was never corrected, the media just stopped reporting on it.

I don't eat seafood or fresh water fish for that matter. I've never been able to stand the taste or smell.
