Which fish are good to eat?

Over-exploitation. Destructive fishing techniques. Polluting fish farms.
If you want to eat ethically, which fish are actually fine for your fork?

From TheGuardian

In an age of over-fishing and crashing marine stocks, it's difficult to keep track of which fish are ethically kosher.
Here I've pooled and visualized the latest consensus and data from the Marine Conservation Society (
PDF), Greenpeace and the SeaFood Watch.

Check the data for yourself

As ever, it's a pretty grim picture.
Although there is some good news. Mussels, clams and oysters are all good to eat.
Hopefully this visual snapshot will help you enjoy a cleaner conscience and a slap-up dinner of ocean-friendly fish'n'chips.
