It's a fabulous time of year for seafood. Dig into these healthy options for salmon, cod, tilapia and shellfish.

Healthiest Catch

There are numerous considerations when choosing healthy seafood. Fish lovers need to weigh in on things like how the fish was caught, where in the world it can be found, and whether or not it contains high amounts of mercury.

To help make sense of things, there's the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Regional Guides. This year's guide highlights Atlantic cod, mussels, salmon, tilapia and oysters as some of its best choices because they are "abundant, well-managed and caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways." You can also check your local fish counter for the Marine Stewardship Council seal of approval.
