App for that: Seafood Watch

Between increased pollution and overfarming to meet the growing demand for seafood, the health of the ocean and the food it supplies is at stake. Whether the catch is salmon, tuna, or octopus, learn to make better sustainable seafood decisions with help from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch app. Free and available for Apple and Android devices, the app provides access to a database with in-depth analysis on more than 80 types of seafood. It also gives each variety a sustainability and safety rating (depending on farming or capturing location and method) to help users make educated choices in the grocery store and when dining out.
