EPA Site Helps Families Identify Healthy Fish
The Environmental Protection Agency on Friday launched a Web site to help children and parents choose healthy seafood.
The site, www.epa.gov/fishadvisories/kids, uses interactive stories and games focusing on different methods of obtaining fish that are low in contaminants, such as camping trips, shopping trips and sport fishing trips. It also teaches children how to recognize common fish species and interpret fish advisories.
Kids.gov, the official children's portal for the U.S. government, selected the site as the August site of the month.
"Our new Web site is a fun way for kids and parents to learn about the importance of fish in a healthy diet and how to choose the healthiest fish to eat," says Benjamin Grumbles, EPA's assistant administrator for water.
