One way to help maintain a healthy and balanced diet is by ensuring that your protein intake is up to standards. While most North Americans opt for beef, pork or chicken as their number one source of protein, this infographic by The Perfect Protein explains why seafood is the most ecological protein source to consume.

Co-authors Suzannah Evans and Andy Sharpless wrote the book The Perfect Protein to explain to foodies around the world why consuming seafood is the best form of protein for the body and the environment. The chart is divided up into different ecological sectors such as water, land, grain and climate. The chart then compares the ecological impact of wild fish compared to beef and reveals that consuming fish has a far less impact on the environment.
