Fishonline

Following on from my post about Panga fish earlier this week, I want to make a quick mention to this interesting and information packed site from the Marine Conservation Society that I found through a Sunday morning browse through the newpapers. Fishonline allows you to search individual fish types, gives information about their stock levels and helps consumers choose sustainable varieties. With stocks of so many breeds of fish being dangerously low due to too many of them being plucked from our oceans, it lists fish to avoid and fish which are more readily available, gives information about commercial fishing and fish and shellfish farming methods. Although it comes from a UK angle, as so much of the fish listed is being caught and moved globally, this is a useful resource for anyone buying and eating fish throughout Europe. Interestingly they rate Panga as a moderate choice and make no mention of suspected toxicity issues.
