Fish Phone Provides Quick Fish Safety Information

Healthy Eating Tip: Text Your Fish

If you're worried about the mercury in fish that you're about to eat then you may want to try Fish Phone, a cool new tool for your phone. All you have to do is text the message FISH and the name of the fish in question to 30644. Withing seconds, you'll get a return text with the Blue Ocean Institutes's assessment and better alternatives to fish with significant environmental concerns. It's pretty cool — I tried it out and got a pretty detailed text back immediately. I'll definitely be using this when I am picking fish in the future.

and where do they get that info? and what about the fish that is from all around the world? how would they know about the fish that was imported from Norway or Japan?
