15 Fishes which should be on your list to Avoid
- Orange Roughy: Apart from high levels of mercury this species take a long time to mature as well as reproduction is also delayed. Which means it is overharvested and that is not good. Instead have domestic catfish or yellow snapper which is quite similar in texture.
- Atlantic Bluefin Tuna: Again this comes in the danger list due to high levels of mercury and as it is near extinction levels. Instead of this go for the Canadian or American albacore tuna which is captured while young and does not have that much mercury. You could enjoy the taste without the dangers.
- Chilean Sea Bass: This is caught illegally plus the stocks are depleting. In fact continued consumption of this fish could result in extinction. An appeal has gone up asking people to stop eating it. Instead use the US Haddock which is quite similar in texture.
