EPA site teaches children about fish

A new Web site from the Environmental Protection Agency uses interactive games and stories to help children and their parents choose fish that promote good health.

The site is connected to the government’s portal for children, kids.gov. The EPA’s site teaches the importance of fish in a healthy diet and how to choose the healthiest fish to eat.

The site's users can learn how to select fish low in contaminants. The site includes stories focusing on different methods of obtaining fish, along with interactive games, to teach children ages 8 years to 12 years old how to recognize common fish species and how to use advisories about fish.
