*** Health / Environment

You should definitely be worried about mercury levels in fish. My recommendation for fish and sushi lovers: don't ever eat Swordfish, Tilefish, Grouper, Orange Roughy, or Shark. Eat Tuna and Makerel (King) sushi only when you have to (e.g. as part of a Sushi Deluxe dinner). Don't order Ahi any more. Tuna from a can is better than fresh Ahi, but don't eat too much of it. Same with Sea Bass, Halibut, Lobster, Crab, Cod, Monkfish, and Skate.

Best to stick with: Abalone (farmed), Anchovies, Butterfish, Calamari (squid), Catfish, Caviar (farmed), Clams, Crab (king), Crawfish/crayfish, Flounder, Haddock, Hake, Herring, Lobster, Mackerel (Atlantic), Mussels (farmed), Oysters, Perch (ocean), Pollock, Salmon (wild), Sardines, Scallops, Shad, Shrimp, Sole, Sturgeon (farmed),Tilapia, Trout, Whitefish.

But even those last should be eaten in moderation, if possible.
