Low, as rated by...: Branzino (european seabass) is farmed in nova scotia, canada. It is rated as a best choice by the monterey bay aquarium seafood watch program. One can search their website for recommendations on any seafood. Same species of fish have more or less mercury, depending on where the fish is coming from.
