I just heard about this on CBC radio. Sounds like a good idea.

Yeah, I heard it too. It is a good idea... it seems though to be a bit thin in its coverage of freshwater fish species (no listing for walleye/pickerel, for example).
You keep buying these things but you don\'t need them,
But as long as you\'re comfortable it feels like freedom.

Good tool but needs work. Checked "shrimp" as I had researched that. It mentions wild Pacific shrimp as a good choice but does not mention wild Atlantic shrimp (what we call crevettes de Matane ou de la Côte-Nord). I believe these small shrimp are still sustainable - though of course everything must be surveyed now.  

I love fish and seafood and am very concerned about being able to eat them - without destroying them! :cat

We (even when speaking English) call walleye/pickerel "doré", and it is indeed a splendid fish, firm enough to grill and stirfry. Yum!
