We lucky residents of the Bay of Banderas area have a wealth of tropical fruits, fresh produce and seafood, almost at our doorsteps. This abundance comes with the responsibility of making informed purchases at the markets and wise orders in restaurants that will ensure enough seafood for future generations.
The oceans, including our part of the Pacific Ocean we know so well, are no longer teeming with fish as they did in years past. Still, we order seafood plates at our favorite restaurants or take fish home from the market to serve our families.
How can we make informed, wise decisions that will not deplete the oceans of their bounty, but rather leave enough marine life for future generations? Cooking in Mexico explores our options and offers resources to help us make these decisions.
Marine researchers and institutions, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Greenpeace, provide on line information about purchases regarding sustainability and healthy seafood eating. Please check out my food blog, Cooking in Mexico, for details, tips and photos.
