I just discovered Seafood Watch, a mobile app that brings up up to-date recommendations for ocean-friendly seafood and sushi. I was doing a restaurant review in Louisville’s Seviche in late September and the chef told me about the app, so I downloaded it right away.
The latest version of the app includes Project FishMap, which lets you share the locations of restaurants and markets where you’ve found sustainable seafood. As the map grows, you’ll also be able to see what others have found near you.
They want you to help map the businesses and restaurants in your own area in the U.S. so that collectively it will make it easier for everyone to find ocean-friendly seafood wherever you are.
The app is available on both Android and iPhone.
- Provides free, up-to-date recommendations at your fingertips with detailed seafood information
- Uses your phone’s GPS to load the right regional guide for your location
- Enables you to search for seafood quickly and easily by common market name
- Allows you to sort seafood by “Best Choice,” “Good Alternative” or “Avoid” rankings
- Sushi guide lists fish by Japanese name as well as common market name
- Provides alternatives to seafood on the “Avoid” list
- New Project FishMap feature lets you contribute to the app by adding the names of restaurants and stores where you’ve found ocean-friendly seafood and locate businesses where others have found sustainable seafood
- Highlights list of “Super Green” seafood that’s good for you and the oceans
