I can't help but wonder..... is it the slow learners featured on the menu?  Seriously, this looks like a great reason to leave the Texas heat for a few days!

People should try to eat more fish Chris, it is a very healthy alternative to meat. That being said, there are concerns about certain fish and the way they are caught or farmed. That pocket guide looks like a handy reference for people to have and consult when it comes to their seafood diet.

Jim, download the regional guide for your area, and it will help give you information to make better choices.

Malcolm, I hear you, their is some evidence eating too much fish high up on the food chain can lead to elevated levels of some dangerous compounds, and there have been growing pains with farmed fish, the food guides are a good tool for the general population.

Wanda I had a look at some of the different guides, they are a great tool
