Attention Fishermen on the Go

Care about sustainable seafood? Have an iPhone? Well, if so, you can now download a new mobile app that tells you which fish to eat and which to toss back at the touch of your fingers.

Created by our friends at Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, Project FishMap is an interactive, easy to use application that also gives you the low-down on health and environmental issues associated with each fish. In short, it’s like having one of those handy Seafood Watch wallet cards in digital form, plus quite a few cool features to boot.

You can add your favorite sustainable seafood markets and restaurants to a map, which, in turn, gives you up-to-the-minute information on where to catch some eco-friendly sea fare, no matter where you are.

The app is free for downloading. So plug in and download away. Which are some of your favorite seafood markets or restaurants? Care to share any new finds with us? What features could added? We can’t guarantee you’ll get them, but it doesn’t hurt to make your voice heard.
