Are you wondering "where can I get one of these Wallet Guides?" Me too...SO I did an on-line search and found this site: Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood WATCH® where you can Download a Regional Seafood Watch Card. They were recently updated in July 2010 so I'm hoping that it has taken the Deepwater Horizon oil spill into consideration since I live in North Carolina and our state is included in the Southeast Guide which includes the entire Gulf Coast.
