We're not the food police and we New Yorkers don't need any more restrictions placed on us, since we don't live in a nannyocracy. Technically.
Still, we are concerned about the consequences of over-fishing, habitat damage, pollution and bycatch (unintentional catch). So, to that end, here's info about which fish are endangered and which are cause for concern. The information comes from the Conservation and Research program of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
You'll find detailed reports on their site about why each fish has been placed in the category that it has. The idea, of course, is that you can order in a restaurant or buy from a shop armed with this knowledge.
