One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish?

Like many of us, I routinely find myself looking at a menu and seeking the intersection of a great tasting meal and a meal that is sensitive to current issues. From being up to date on current fisheries issues to wading through the (mis)use of organic labeling, food choices are anything but simple.

Here are a few tools...

For a current, wallet-size guide to ocean-friendly seafood go here.

Concerned about mercury, PCBs and other contaminants in fish? Go here.

And a slick new phone texting service. Text Blue Ocean Institute’s Fishphone at 30644 with the message FISH and the name of the fish in question and get updated guidance on whether it's a good choice or not.

Call me a geek but I think this last example of technology use is beyond slick, cool or something to impress your friends.

I think it's groundbreaking.

We need to look at the issues and problems we're facing and seek out every possible tool that can help us address them. It doesn't matter if they are bit-based or atom-based.

Different tools for different jobs.

What's a new tool that's being applied to an issue or problem?

What is an example of a new tool or approach to an issue or problem?
