For that reason, we’ve put together this handy visual guide to sustainable seafood options, so when it comes time to order dinner, you’ll know which menu items will satisfy your stomach without endangering at-risk animals such as sharks, Atlantic cod, grouper, Atlantic bluefin tuna, and Chilean sea bass.
