Species: Sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) Catch Date: 01/04/20 Boat: F/V Sea Harvest Captain: Dan & Caulder 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.

Species: Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Smoke Date: 01/06/20 Aquaculture Farm: McFarland Springs Location: Susanville, CA Farming Method: Spring Fed Raceway, 100% Vegetarian Feed Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice Share Size: Full Share 8 oz

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: Black Trumpets (Craterellus cornucopioides) Harvest Date: 01/04/20 Forager: Sierra Madre Location: Humboldt County Harvest Method: Hand Harvested Share Size: Full Share 0.75 lbs

Black Trumpets can be found locally in mixed Tan Oak and Redwood Forests and fruit in late Fall through winter. They range from Santa Cruz County northward. Sometimes confused as Black Chanterelles, they're actually not closely related to each other. They have a rich and complex flavor a wonderfully fragrant smell and are a favorite of many local foragers and chefs. They can be very difficult to find due to their dark color and camouflaging abilities.
Species: Dwarf Rockweed (Pelvetiopsis limitata) Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus) Cat's Tounge (Mastocarpus papillatus) Harvest Date: 01/06/20 Forager: Ian O'Hollaren of Seaquoia Seaweeds Location: Santa Cruz County Harvest Method: Hand Harvested Share Size: Full Share 1.0 lb Half Share 0.5 lbs Shares will be a medley of the three types of seaweed

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.

Bladderwrack derives its name from the numerous air filled pods that help keep the algae afloat. This species is common in Central and Northern California and can be found on rocky reef surfaces in the intertidal zones. They are attached firm to the rocky surface being able to withstand constant wave motion. They are perennial algae that has an olive green to orange hue. Bladderwrack has been studied extensively for medicinal uses and is full of beneficial minerals and has been researched for its ability to reduce inflammation in the body.

Cat’s Tongue is a species of red algae that is commonly found on rocks in the intertidal regions ranging from Mexico to Alaska. Cat’s tongue is aptly named for the rough, sandpaper like texture that it’s blades have. It has a mild oceanic flavor and is in abundance during the Spring and Summer months. Cats Tongue has a variety of therapeutic uses including boosting the immune system, reducing bacterial and viral infections and is loaded with healthy vitamins and minerals.
Cats Tongue is considered a highly sustainable seaweed option. It is locally abundant with a healthy stock status and a low harvest pressure. You can find Cats Tongue year round but it will be most abundant during the spring through the end of summer. When harvested properly, the harvester will only cut 10-20% of the blade, which allows the seaweed to grow back full and healthy. This small prune also ensures that it will be able to grow and propagate for the future.
