I would probably just eat albacore for every meal if I didn't think it would kill me

I eat a lot of fish. Since I took over dinner duties for myself and my SO, I've been thinking about the health risks and environmental impact of the stuff we eat. I need some help figuring out the risks of stuff like mercury and the environmental impact of fishing, particularly as compared to eating chicken and pork, which are our other main meat sources.

Oh Cod, it makes me Eel when people Carp and Whale just for the Halibut...

I really, really like fish, but I've been scared off of it for years due to the mercury, PCBs, et al that seem to be present in every fish nowadays, both wild and farmed. Are there still non-polluted/toxic fish to eat? Are there any fish species - or even particular runs or farms or "brands" - that are just, you know, clean? [more inside]

Mercury in Fish

I watched Episode 208 of Discoveries This Week on the Discovery Science Channel, and there was a short blurb about mercury levels in fish. They showed a web site with drop down boxes so you could enter in what fish you have been eating and come up with a figure for how much mercury you have been consuming. I didn't have anything to write on, and by the time I got home to the computer I couldn't recall the address. The Discovery site is useless and I'm not having any luck with Google. Did anyone catch it and go to the site they mentioned?
