In Response To: Orange Roughy (sam)
Dear Sam, Even if orange roughy were the most highly beneficial
fish for my type, I would avoid it.
According to the CPSC issue on seafood, the orange roughy is a very
long-lived, slow-breeding fish. It lives in very deep waters, most
notably off the coasts of New Zealand. Since this fish does not reach
sexual maturity till 18 or 20 years, and since in the interest of meeting
demand most of the fish harvested are not sexually mature, resulting
in uncertain but possibly devastating drops in the stock of orange roughy,
it would be wise to limit consumption of this fish to preserve the species.
