Sustainable Seafood in SD

Interesting article and list of places locally that either sell or serve sustainable seafood.

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

  1. "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...

      2. 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
