RHS’S Farm Raised Salmon

Is it necessary to farm salmon?  The development of farmed salmon is quite a hot topic. Arguments against farm-raised salmon often highlight the negative health and environmental effects of aquacultured salmon specifically in comparison to wild-caught salmon. While some concerns of farming salmon may hold some truth, when practicing safe aquaculture techniques farmed salmon can be a great solution to […]


There are no bad soles…. just undervalued ones

Light, flaky, and delicately sweet, sole is the star of many menus across the West Coast. Top restaurants invariably feature some variety of flatfish on their menus. Flounder and sole are flatfish species that belong to several families.  For marketing purposes, the common names of sole and flounder are used interchangeably, but strictly speaking, they […]

Fish From Where?

A Transnational Industry The seafood industry has become an international market. Products travel thousands of miles to sustain the global patterns of seafood consumption. For seafood lovers, this means you can enjoy Japanese scallops or Mediterranean octopuses while sitting in a local San Francisco restaurant. While on the consumer end this may sound great, crossing international borders complicates things in terms of sustainability and food safety.   Transparency The biggest problem when receiving seafood across international borders is the lack of transparency about how […]
