Okay, tilapia's off the menu...any recommendable substitutes?

I had my suspicions about it from the outset, but the thread downstream seems to confirm them, with some commenters in disagreement. I never bought it, but my 80 year old (limited budget) mom was a big fan...until I spoke with her tonight and mentioned some of the downsides listed in the aforementioned thread.

But she *loves* fish...the problem is, she lives in Florida, and years after Deepwater Horizon, I still don't think it's a good idea for her to be eating locally-sourced fish.

Anyone know of a reasonably (if not comparably) priced alternative for her? I basically just eat overpriced (but safe...I think) sushi at the better Los Angeles sushi restaurants where the chefs are extremely picky about the fish they serve, so I don't know what's on offer at the grocery stores.

She'd (and I'd) love any good suggestions! :)
