No doubt about it: eating fish, seafood, and other meat these days is fraught with cultural and financial politics. If you enjoy eating these foods but don’t wish to contribute to the more Upton Sinclair-ian, Jungle-ish elements of their respective industries, the Central Coast hosts a number of sustainable options from which to choose.
Producing fish and seafood in a more sustainable manner tends to cost more but, if you’re not eating it every night of the week, paying for quality production with a less intense environmental footprint seems a good choice especially for the health of ocean populations.
