The Seafood Decision Guide was created for seafood consumers to know just how healthy each type of sea creature they are consuming. The chart features over 70 options, including Alaskan Salmon, shark and crab.

By clicking the silhouette of each fish, one can learn how sustainable the animal is, its OMEGA-3 levels and its mercury content. There is also a filter on the sidebar that allows one to choose at which level (high, moderate, low) of integrity of fish they are looking for. This clever idea helps people understand the dangerous levels of mercury in regional fish, as well as, the sustainability of wild caught animals. National Geographic's Seafood Decision Guide is a smart tool for any seafood indulgent.
