As the year comes to a close, it got us to think back on out favorite blogs of the year. These were some of the articles we had the most fun with in 2013.
5- 10 Ways to Know if You’re a Sustainable Seafoodie
We talk about it a lot in the office. Once you start reading about where your seafood comes from, eating sustainable seafood becomes an obsession! From reading the fine print at the fish counter to learning the sustainable seafood lingo, there is a new way to geek out! Are you a sustainable seafoodie?

Our number one post of 2013 is kind of a sciencey one. While eating bluefin tuna can be problematic when they’re caught on the wild because they’re endangered, eating the farmed version is no better. “For every pound of tuna produced, they need to eat 20 pounds of fish feed. And what is that feed made of? Other fish!”
