fish, oceans, conservation
Sweetspring Coho salmon was described as "muddy" by a fish buyer (Paris Seafood Conference, 2010).Hopefully they can get the taste problems sorted out. Also, the fish feed diet is no less 'fishy' than other ocean based salmon farms. They did try a vegetable rich diet, but the fish got the runs (might have had something to do with the taste issue!). They have now gone back to the same diet as other salmon farms - yet the 'supergreen' label is still given by Monterey Bay.Fishy alright...
UPDATE on this story: the Montana farms have both closed operations. They lost much money and have parted (not in a nice way) with SweetSpring. SweetSpring continues to operate, but loses money monthly, but is financially kept buoyant by the Mooore Foundation and billionaire Jimmy Pattison.
