Choosing Fish Wisely

Having just learned that my husband has blood type B, I went in search of information on which fish are high in heavy metals. I couldn't find the article I was looking for, but found this related one and thought I'd share it. It's from about 5 years ago in the International Association of Culinary Professionals newsletter:
"The Centerfor Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) recommends eating fish caught offshore rather than those caught in coastal or fresh waters. Offshore fish are less apt to be contaminated. It also suggests avoiding fatty fish, since pesticides and PCBs accumulate in fat.
"According to a "best bites" chart compiled by CSPI and based on likelihood of contamination and percentages of calories from fat, recommended species are lobster,
cod, mahi mahi, tuna, haddock, perch, pollack, orange roughy and grouper. Second-tier recommendations are flounder, snapper, king crab, sea scallops, rockfish, monkfish and sea bass. The "no-no" list includes bluefish, stripped bass, swordfish, shark, sablefish, mackerel, shad and herring."
Does anyone else have any other info on heavy metal contamination in fish that may be more current? We've learned a lot about omega-6-fatty acids in fish being beneficial since this article was written so I don't want to leave the higher fat fish out of the diet unless the heavy metals are particularly problematic in a species.
