Chilean Sea Bass alternatives

Chilean sea bass, which is the marketing name for Patagonian toothfish, is not only endangered from over fishing, but is high in mercury because it is a long-lived slow-growing fish. Moreover, the fishing method results in fatal hooking and drowning of the endangered albatross. Many good restaurants have taken it off their menus. Depending on the method of preparation, there are better alternatives like Haddock, Halibut, Cod, and Striped Bass, etc.
