Despite the unpleasant discovery, Dr. McDonald said she wasn’t dissuaded from eating fish or sushi but says it’s important to be mindful, “I ate fish again the night after we found the results! I love fish and I love sushi. I’ll stay away from anything labeled “white tuna” just to be safe, but these results won’t stop me from eating it in the future! I will be much more discerning in the fish I buy at the grocery store, to look for sustainable fishing certification on the label. This increases the likelihood that you’ll get fish you can trust to be what the box or label says it is, and you can also be playing a role in helping make the fishing industry more sustainable. Look for the MSC logo on your food to know if it’s certified sustainable or not.”
