Sustainability is complicated but dinner is a reality that we all very much understand.

Barton Seaver, Sustainability Fellow in Residence, New England Aquarium

The oceans have changed more in the last 30 years than in all of human history. Throughout the world, decades of intense fishing have diminished species high on the food chain (shark, swordfish, tuna and cod), opening up a new world of underused, underappreciated and surprisingly tasty fish. Don’t think of it as trash fish—it’s the best seafood you’ve never tried.
