Smart Shopper’s Fish Picks

The best fish for your healthy diet.

| January/February 2006

Doctors urge us to include fish as part of a healthy diet, yet many species are disapearing from waterways while others contain unhealthy toxins. The Green Guide’s handy chart helps you wade through levels of endangerment as well as probable mercury levels.


• L = low in mercury
• M = moderate levels of mercury (Children and pregnant or nursing women should eat no more than once per month)
• H = highest in mercury (Children and pregnant or nursing women should avoid.)

To learn which fish from local water bodies are safe to eat, call your state Department of Health.
