Happy that I found this!
Some seafood choices are much better for the environment and for us than others, but I don't always remember what's what and sometimes the information changes. I always have my iPhone with me, and this makes it so easy to make good choices when I'm in a store or restaurant. I like that things aren't just rated "good" or "bad"; there's an explanation of the reasons (overfishing, contaminants, etc) plus a wikipedia kink to learn more. It's a bargain at 99 cents, but it's good that the price is so low because that will encourage more people to get it.
