Available Fish Species


Species: Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Catch Date: 01/26/2020

Aquaculture Farm: McFarland Springs

Location: Susanville, CA

Farming Method: 100% Vegetarian Red Algea Feed, Spring Fed Raceway

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Share Size: 1.0 lb

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: Dungeness Crab (Metacarcinus magister)

Catch Date: 01/25/21

Boat: F/V Ellin Lane

Captain: Chris Graft

Port: Fort Bragg

Catch Method: Trap

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Dungeness Crab is a West Coast tradition with a fishery dating back to the late 1800’s. They have a unique life cycle that involves five different larvae stages before metamorphosing into mature crabs. The crabs molt annually allowing them to grow up to an inch during their molting season. Without an exoskeleton, they are left defenseless and can be found buried beneath the sand while waiting for their new shell to harden. Mating occurs immediately after molting with the male embracing the female for several days before mating begins. The female is able to carry 2.5 million eggs per season which she keeps safe by attaching them onto her body. When live, these crustaceans have a beautiful purple hue and are prized for the delicate, soft and mildly sweet flavor that is best appreciated fresh from the boat.

Dungeness Crab in California is considered a well managed fishery with strict regulations which only allow crabs to be caught for a select number of months each year. Traps have minimal bycatch and negligible environmental damage. All females are freed and only males with a carapaces greater than 5.75 inches can be retained. Relatively stable landings over the past 30 years suggest that the Dungeness Crab population is healthy, although no formal stock assessments have been made.
