Catfish: Look for U.S. farmed catfish—it's sustainably raised in nonpolluting in­land ponds, fed a mostly vegetarian diet.

Tilapia: U.S. farmed tilapia is considered the best choice—it's raised in closed farming systems that protect nearby ecosystems. Central and South American tilapia is considered a good alternative. Avoid farmed tilapia from China and Taiwan, where the fish farming pollutes the surrounding environment.

Haddock (Scrod): To get the best choice, ask for U.S. Atlantic "hook-and-line-caught" haddock—this method causes the least damage to the sea floor and has the least bycatch.
