The Environmental Defense Fund of New York announced Wednesday that consumers now can access information from its "Seafood Selector To-Go" Web site with their mobile devices.

The site, http://m.edf.org/seafood, is designed to provide consumers easy access to health and environmental information for more than 200 seafood choices when at restaurants or retail outlets. The program is a result of EDF and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program combining their eco-guides.

"Many eco- and health-conscious consumers are confused about issues such as overfishing and mercury," said Tim Fitzgerald, marine scientist for EDF, in a press release. "This new tool provides easy access to best and worst choices, as well as more detailed health and environmental information and recipes."
