For the Conscientious Fish Consumer

My friend Lois alerted me to an interesting  book that might inspire fish eaters who aim to eat responsibly and healthfully. It’s called Fish Tales:  Stories and Recipes from Sustainable Fisheries Around the World, which is published in association with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), the world’s leading certification and ecolabelling program for sustainable seafood.

Here’s a summary of the book from MSC: “From the haddock and cod fished in Norway, to the clams caught in Vietnam, via the salmon caught by Eskimos in Alaska, fishmonger, Bart van Olphen and chef, Tom Kime, travelled to each of the fisheries to learn about their sustainable methods of fishing and get to know the people and communities who recognise the need to restore balance in our fragile oceans. With stunning location photography, each chapter offers captivating accounts on the fishery and its native fish, accompanied by delicious recipes inspired by a variety of places and cultures.”

Looks like a good gift idea for the conscientious foodie this holiday season!
