Sustainable Seafood in SD

DiningDiva Mar 1, 2012 10:07 AM

Interesting article and list of places locally that either sell or serve sustainable seafood. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/f...

Be sure to scroll down and ready the comments. They're as intersting as the article ;-D

    Why can't I ever find sardines on a San Diego menu?

    (I wrote an angry comment about "sustainable" seafood and the fish farming industry-- and the self-righteous trumpeting of fish industry people, who want to swing all ways. But I deleted it.)

    Whole Foods for fish? In San Diego? Why?

        Sardines are often available at the La Jolla Whole Foods, but not at the Hillcrest branch.

        Hmmm, I was waiting for you to weigh in. ;D

        "Like", although the list does seem a little incomplete by only featuring "the usual suspects". I think they need to dig a little deeper in their research to include some of the smaller players that are playing by the rules.

          Agree, SD Coastkeeper, while a good start, should expand their research. Afterall, it'll be good for those smaller places to get some recognition and exosure.

            Kind of why I suggested scrolling down and reading the comments as well. I thought there were several valid points made there. I also thought it was worth expanding clicking on the "see more" link to read all of Tommy Gomes comments.

            But it was certainly an admirable start...
