Fish are a delicious, but problematic
food source for humans
. For those who've been cramming the Seafood Watch guide
into their pockets when contemplating dining out or their next menu for decades, the next generation of fish eating awareness has arrived, in the form of a free mobile application.
No need to worry now if the guide is up to date, or if you've made the right "best alternative" choice in your fish eating purchase. Also, like its subject, the app now integrates a form of collective decision making
, in that it allows for users to upload the location of "good" or "best alternative" fish to the database and as such disseminate it to others.
