Finger Lingcod Good!

More than 80% of the lingcod caught in the US is a green Best Choice. Buy lingcod (“kinmutsu” in sushi) from the U.S. and British Colombia because its always a green Best Choice or yellow Good Alternative.

Update to our Chilean farmed salmon ratings

We have removed our yellow Good Alternative rating for Sixty South salmon farmed in Chile. We now recommend avoiding their farmed salmon product.

Nova Austral recently concluded an internal investigation regarding alleged misreporting of its salmon mortalities and found “irregularities.” Seafood Watch recommendations follow a scientific standard that relies on accurate data. Given the company’s own findings, we removed the current Good Alternative recommendation for its Sixty South product. Our broader Avoid recommendation for farmed salmon from Chile now applies. This product is not part of our work with SalmonChile to reduce chemical use in the Chilean salmon industry. 

You can view all our farmed salmon recommendations online or by downloading the free Seafood Watch app.

You can turtally help marine wildlife by making more responsible seafood choices. Every year as many as 250,000 sea turtles are accidentally caught  in certain types of fishing gear. Our sustainable seafood recommendations take into consideration these unintended impacts. Encourage restaurants and businesses to take a look at how their seafood is being harvested.
