Boat: F/V Sea Harvest

Captain: Daniel Deyerle

Port: Moss Landing

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)

Catch Date: 11/10/2020

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: Lobster Mushrooms (Hypomyces lactifluorum)

Harvest Date: 11/01/2020

Location: Humboldt County

Harvester: Jacob Deckert

Harvest Method: Hand Harvested

Lobster Mushrooms get their name from their striking red color and taste which resembles that of a lobster. The red color that is associated with these mushrooms are from a colonizing mold which will ultimately parasitize the mushroom host covering the entire outer fruiting body. Yet when you cut the mushroom open it has a bright white hue. Lobster Mushrooms are often found under Hemlock trees in late summer into early autumn and prefer the dryness of summer. The colonizing mold gives this meaty mushroom its highly desired flavor. These mushrooms are versatile and can be used in a variety of ways in the kitchen.

Harvest Date: 11/09/2020

Location: Humboldt County

They are found in California and in the Pacific Northwest among Pines and other Conifer trees. They are a rare treat and can be cooked in the same ways as the golden chanterelle. They have a meaty texture with a mild aroma and flavor.
