Question for seafood experts, or fish mongers ...
What's the difference between "wild caught" and "wild"? Is there one?
I noticed the other day, a sign advertising "wild caught filets".
Is there a difference between, say, a "wild caught salmon" and just "wild salmon"?
I mean, is it possible that a fish be "wild" but not "wild caught"? Like, could a fishing boat go out to sea looking for wild fish, and then use "farmed" techniques to catch the fish?
I'm in the business look at it this way.
virtually every single reference to seafood, by all media outlets and nearly all industry players, lists a product as "farm-raised" or "wild-caught."
keep it simple, drop the "raised" and "caught." Products are either farmed or wild.
