Eat Fresh, Never Frozen, Wild-Caught Shrimp
Barton Seaver, a sustainable seafood expert and author of For Cod & Country, writes that much of the shrimp sold at fish counters is farm-raised, and most comes from largely unregulated farms in Southeast Asia and South America that have a significant negative impact on their environments. Shrimp fisheries in the U.S. are the best regulated in the world, and Seaver is a fan of shrimp from Maine and the Gulf (which, following the oil spill last year, is now safe to eat). Most seafood counters and fishmongers now display signs explaining where the food comes from.
