Human beings have harvested the bounty of the waters ever since they set up camp alongside streams, around lakeshores or on the coast of the wide open sea. Not only are fish and seafood tasty and versatile, every week brings a new study on the health benefits of including seafood in your diet.

More people around the world are eating fish and seafood than ever before. One unfortunate consequence of this growing appetite is an alarming plunge in many of the world's river, lake and marine species. So it pays to be mindful of what you buy and eat.

One good resource for what is okay to consume and what to avoid is the Seafood Watch Pocket Guide from the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California. The guide is easy to print, fold and store in your wallet. The aquarium updates the guide frequently, so you know your always on top of the latest recommendations.
