“How I Fell In Love with a Fish”

“How I Fell In Love with a Fish”


Although I have mixed feelings about TED, which too often seems very self-congratulatory, this TED talk by Dan Barber, of Blue Hill Farms, is both hilarious and really informative. Veta la Palma is a completely innovative fish farm in the south of Spain, where they’re growing fish for restaurants in a natural, clean, reclaimed wetland. Figuring out how to farm fish is crucial for those of us who want to continue eating fish, since we’ve drastically overfished the oceans, but Veta la Palma has also reclaimed a wetland to do what wetlands are supposed to do, cleanse water.

One thought on ““How I Fell In Love with a Fish”

  1. We are every bit as concerned about fish in the Northwest as anywhere. But sustainability is now the practice for our NW salmon fishery, as is restoration of salmon habitat in this region.

    At http://www.SeattleSmokehouse.com we only offer wild salmon, due to the clear polution effects of salmon farming in the Pacific. This selectivity differs greatly from farmed Atlantic salmon sources, or from South American salmon products prevalent in the USA, due to what else…cheap prices.

    And Washington is showing the way for sustainable practices that will allow future chefs and our grandchildren to continue to enjoy this remarkable fish.
