The Monterey Bay Aquarium does more than offer a great place to visit sea creatures--their website has a message for you: there’s a limit, people. There’s a limit to how many “incidental” animals should die in pursuit of those that people find particularly tasty, there’s a limit to how many of a specific species should be taken--in short, there’s only so many fish in the sea.
But while the site points out what’s going wrong in the briny depths, it also freely hands out the tools to help people make informed decisions about the seafood we eat. These include the best choices for your region of the country; best sushi decisions; fish to eat that is both good for your health and good for the health of the oceans. You can even do a search on specific kinds of seafood to see how healthy its numbers are.
And while you’re there, you can check out the cute little baby otter that the Aquarium rescued in August.
