Healthy Fish and Seafood

Crab and Imitation Crab

Dungeness crab trapped in the Canadian Pacific  or from California, Oregon or Washington all pass the sustainability test. Imitation crab, which is usually a mix of white fish species (Alaska pollock is the most popular), is OK to eat occasionally when Dungeness crab isn’t available: It’s difficult to determine if all other white fish in imitation crab were fished responsibly, so SeaChoice ranks it as having “some concerns” instead of a “best choice.”
