Sustainable Seafood

Memory, brain health, and seafood often go hand in hand, but is eating fish good for the planet? The third video in a four-part series on Health Oceans explains which fish consumers need to avoid and which are safe to consume without concern. Discussions about wild versus farmed, location on the food chain, and pollutants provide a well rounded overview of the topic. Young scientists  are encouraged to adopt healthy eating and sustainability practices for a great global lesson.
