I’m really stoked to be working with beautiful, steelhead trout. I love Salmon, but since the wild stocks are so low and the farmed salmon harm the environment I haven’t been eating it. I was happy to see cases of local steelhead come into the restaurant. They are farmed North of Saskatoon in a lake, so it is a closed system that cannot contaminate other local fish stocks. They look like salmon and have a lot of omega 3s. I’m not sure what they feed them which concerns me, if it is fish meal that is bad for depleting wild fish stocks. I’m just glad that it’s local and it takes some of the pressure off of the salmon.

    I am having a hell of a time getting salmon off the menu this winter. I think I am almost there. We are a fishing charter company and it is our logo after all. I think the suggestion that if we and others don’t take steps now to stop selling it, our charter operation will be fishing for jellyfish in ten years helped.

    Then I will have to put jellyfish on the menu.
