Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Farmed catfish is one that I've eaten for years, it's a good choice, as is tilapia. The salmonoid fish don't fare so well when they're farm raised. And I find it an offense against all that is holy amongst fisherpeople to see my local high-end grocery offer "farm-raised steelhead." Steelhead can't be sold, it is only a game fish (at least in Washington state, but probably a federal USFW rule in the entire Pacific Northwest) and steelhead is the anadromous larger older fish that was once a rainbow trout. Farming a fish with such a wonderful life history, keeping it in pens all of its life - bah!

I'm ignoring the bad poetry being dropped into the thread.
