If you are out a restaurant and want to check if a fish you are about to order is okay to eat, use your cell phone to text: Fish and the name of the seafood you are about to order to 30644.

For example your text to 306440 would read:
Fish Yellow Tuna

You will get a text back in seconds with a environmental concerns report and a health advisory report on that particular fish.

Happy eating!
