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.

What Bird Did I See?

Need help identifying a bird I saw today. I was driving along Jordan Lake, near Chapel Hill, NC. A large bird flying over the lake folded its wings in slightly, and glided down, in a slight partial spiral, to the lake surface and grabbed a fish. I'd guess I was about 200 feet away. I've seen eagles and osprey at the lake. This bird was that size, with a very large wingspan. Coloring: Appeared black; may have been dark brown. Markings: White on the trailing underside of the wings, at least one-half the width of the wing, beginning at the body and continuing approx. 80 percent of the way to the wing tip. I didn't notice any other markings.

Minnows that eat mosquitoes.

I have a 2 gallon clear plastic fish tank. I just put a couple of water hyacinths in along with the tiny aquatic snails they harbored and a handful of compost for nutrients. I also want to add a few small fish that will feed on mosquitoes. What would be the best commonly-available species, or mix of species? This is all just for fun, by the way. I live new Atlanta, Georgia.

Gold barb massacre.

So this afternoon I added ten gold barbs to my thirty gallon community tank and now (+8 hours) they are all dead.

That's a Long Swim for a Beta Fish

Beta Fish Question. My daughter just got a new Beta fish. The first in over a year since Swaba #3 died. My wife took the latest fish and put it a glass vase that is about 8 inches square and 2 feet high. He mostly sits on the bottom as beta fish seem to do. I told my wife that 2 feet is a long way to swim to eat and that he might require a gulp of air every once in a while. Does anyone here think that 2 feet is too far to swim for a beta and that his days are numbered, more so than usual, in his tower of glass.

Making the most of frozen salmon

I just ordered some wild Alaskan salmon online, partially in hopes of being able to prepare sushi for myself at home. But the fish feels a little spongy when I eat it raw after defrosting it. Is this because of how long it's been frozen? Is there any way to revitalize fish that has been frozen for a period of months? [more inside]

There's something fishy going on over there

Feeling disenchanted with tuna salad, but want to keep eating fish for lunch every day. What are you best suggestions for easy, portable lunches that feature fish as a prominent ingredient?

Safe to add food coloring to betta's water?

I am wondering if there is any risk to a betta fish at all of adding some food coloring to his water? We have been pulling minor pranks on a coworker and many on Fridays have revolved around a fish and I am thinking adding a couple of drops to make a light tinge to the water would be good if it posed no risk to the fish. Everything I've googled looks like it is fine, but really trying to cover my bases in advance.

Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for a sushi first-timer?

NYC-foodie-filter: A friend of mine wants to try sushi for the very first time. The game plan is to order a couple of pieces as an appetizer and either proceed to a full entree if she enjoys it or bail and order something different if it turns out that raw fish is not to her liking. Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for this culinary adventure? I'd prefer a place in Manhattan or Queens, easily accessible from Midtown Manhattan and reasonably priced. Not too fancy. [more inside]
