Haddock

Haddock caught with hook and line from the Canadian Atlantic and handline-caught haddock from the U.S. Atlantic are both considered best choices. In October 2010, the Marine Stewardship Council licensed Canadian vessels fishing in designated areas including the Bay of Fundy and the Canadian portion of Gerges Bank and the Gulf of Maine. Avoid trawled haddock: the cod bycatch may prevent the regeneration of cod populations.
