Sierra Club Safe Sushi app

The Sierra Club has launched a smartphone app that educates consumers about the methylmercury levels found in fish.

The California-based environmental group said its Safe Sushi app is “for people who love to eat sushi and want to be informed about which fish have high levels of mercury,” which is a neurotoxin. The app can be used in two ways — search by mercury level (high, moderate and low) or search by species name.

The app is free to download in the Android Market and will be available for free on iTunes on Friday.

Safe Sushi also includes a tutorial that illustrates how mercury is absorbed into the atmosphere and moves through the food chain.
