More on Fish

Pret a Manger, the British sandwich chain partly owned by McDonalds, has eliminated their tuna sushi because of concerns about overfishing of bluefin tuna. Early reports were that they were eliminating all tuna products; Bloomberg has what appears to be the accurate report here.

Think about it ... do you really need that can of tuna fish for your lunch? Some alternatives: cheese, egg salad, PB&J -- or use walnut butter on your sandwich if it's the omega-3 fatty acids you're looking for in the fish.

Think about taking one step in that direction. Once a week, skip the tuna in favor of something with less impact.
