Reduce Your Carbon Footprint: Eat Anchovies and Sardines

It's been well documented that anchovies and sardines are an excellent, affordable source of omega-3s and vitamin D. If that wasn't enough to convince you to give high-quality versions of these small fish a chance, consider the environmental impact of just what it takes to bring them to your table. As April Fulton for NPR reports, "... to catch a metric ton (about 2,200 pounds) of sardines or anchovies, it takes about 5 gallons of fuel. In contrast, to get the same amount of lobster or shrimp, you'd burn an average of 2,100 to 2,600 gallons of fuel."
