Eat Foreign, Fish Locally

newsbites_420a_dark

You have a delicious seafood dinner planned, but can’t get the fish you want (or any close substitute). The grocery store, fish market, and wharf supplier are clean out-of-stock, of every type of native fish. Invasive species are here, and are eating or out-competing the locals. Yes, it’s really happening.

One proposed supply solution: Dine on exotic fish. According to the the “National Smart Seafood Guide 2011,” by non-profit, Food & Water Watch, adding invasive species to our diet could help control their population levels, and in turn, give native populations a chance to recover (for your dining pleasure).
