Monterey Aquarium's sustainable seafood list gets a delicious update

Black cod, zero guilt

Earlier this month, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Guide moved a flurry of fish — a stunning 21 West Coast species — to the list of seafood that’s A-OK for sustainability-minded diners and chefs. Environmentalists were thrilled. According to the Environmental Defense Fund, credit for the turnaround goes to fishermen and women and fishery managers — whose commercial fisheries had been declared a federal disaster in 2000 because of overfishing — for successfully “using innovative ways to avoid catching overfished species and protect the marine habitat.”
