“If you’re a seafood lover, pick up this guide to which fish are the best for our bodies and which are best for the environment.”—San Francisco ChronicleJust when opting for omega-3-rich seafood is being recognized as one of the healthiest dietary choices a person can make, the news seems to be full of stories about mercury-laden tuna, shrimp contaminated with antibiotics, and diminishing fish stocks. Is it still even good for us? Bottomfeeder is the story of a seafood lover’s round-the-world quest for a truly decent meal. A balanced and practical guide to eating—newly updated for the paperback edition—it explains which fish are best for the environment, the seas, and our bodies.
