Species: Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Catch Date: 02/19/2020 Aquaculture Farm: Mcfarland Springs Location: Susanville, CA Farming Method: Farming Method: Spring Fed Raceway, 100% Vegetarian Feed Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice Share Size: Full Share 1.25 lbs Half Share 0.65 lbs Fillets will be skin on with some small pin bones

Rainbow Trout are a species of salmonid native to the West Coast of North America. Commonly referred to as Steelhead, Rainbow Trout are anadromous, meaning they are capable of moving back and forth from the river to the ocean then back again to the river to spawn (sometimes several times throughout their lives). They have a delicate texture, medium flake and a flavor similar to wild salmon.

McFarland Springs is leading the aquaculture industry in sustainability by utilizing 100% pure vegetarian feed made with red algae. They have eliminated antibiotics and all other medicines from their diet as well. Most farmed fish (eg. Salmon and Prawns) have a bad rap for good reasons, they are fed a diet that contains large amounts of antibiotics as well as fishmeal which is produced from wild fish stocks. This practice of catching wild fish to feed farmed fish in inefficient and unsustainable. Fish farming practices also degrade wild habitat by polluting local waters with effluent, medicines and other additives.


Species: Sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) Catch Date: 02/18/2020 Boat: F/V Sea Harvest Captain: Dan Deyerle Port: Moss Landing Catch Method: Bottom Set Line Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice Share Size: Full Share 1.25 lbs Half Share 0.65 lbs Fillets will be skin on with some small pin bones

Sablefish is commonly known as butterfish due to its soft texture, delicate flakes and rich buttery taste. These characteristics can be contributed to its high levels of healthy fatty acids. It has been consumed as a delicacy in Japan for many years and is now making its way onto the local market. Sablefish are found in muddy seabeds at depths of up to 9,000 feet and prefer the edge of the continental shelf. They are opportunistic hunters who like to feed on other fish, squid and even jellyfish. Sablefish mature early and have a long lifespan (up to 90 years).

Sablefish’s buttery, rich and flakey texture make it a great substitute for other impact fish, such as the Chilean Seabass. It is a very well managed fish with its population numbers well into the healthy range. When they are caught using fishing methods such as traps or bottom set lines, they have minimal bycatch and environmental impacts.

They have a rich and complex flavor a wonderfully fragrant smell and are a favorite of many local foragers and chefs.

Their caps have a soft peach color with a convexed and dented inner margin. Hedgehog’s have a unique earthy and nutty flavor with a mild peppery taste.

Dwarf Rockweed is a brown perennial algae that is commonly found in the intertidal zones on the tops of rocks. They can grow to about 4-8 centimeters tall and their fronds have a light tan to olive green color. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and when blanched it has an enhanced crunchy texture, a bright green color with a mild flavor.

Dwarf rockweed is an abundant species that grows to form large colonies in the intertidal zones. They are a hardy species of algae that has adapted to photosynthesize both in and out of the water and are able to tolerates the rough tumble of constantly breaking waves. Due to their sheer biomass, they are considered a sustainable option as their population numbers are high, they are quick to grow and the commercial pressure locally is low. Dwarf Rockweed is seasonally available during the spring and summer months. When foraging for Dwarf Rockweed it is most common to harvest the younger, more tender plants which leaves the mature algae to spore for the next generation.

Splendid Iridescent is a species that grows locally in the Monterey Bay. It is also called Sweet Kelp and has thin, tender sheets. When finely chopped or sliced, it makes a great addition to any vegetable dish, salad, or soup.
