Gui.. what is really sad is the fact the just about every fresh water lake, river, and stream in the U S of A is contaminated with PCBs, mercury, and other heavy metals. Most fish we buy in stores is "farm raised" Now.. where do you suppose all rivers drain to? Now.. think Ocean fish are safe? One can only wonder....

Yes..all those


I gave Valiente and Tom, some Percebes when they came to Portugal!!!

Val was amazed how fast I can eat sea food

We have even more sea food than the Spanish, but Galicia is Portugal

Here in NC the Gulfstream comes in close along with deep Atlantic waters and we go to the dock for our fish...not the supermarket! Big Tuna and Mahi-Mahi from offshore and fresh shrimp in the bays are what I go for...I like 'em all blackened cajun style!!

No...that is not me and I did not catch it. Just typical of what shows up on our piers! Friend went out last week on the bay with a throw net and pulled in 200lbs of shrimp in one evening!! Best year for shrimp in a decade!!

It's GIU!!!!!! NOT GUI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Denise....I didn't know about that...sorry.

Now we're having more and more sea water farm fish, but that's to protect the wild ones.

The farms are in like net islands they put in the water and sometimes we hit them...not pretty...

denise,
Where you buyin' those farm raised whitefish and bluegills? Don't know about PA, but we're catchin' and eatin' our limit. Most lakes and rivers are NOT contaminated, just some large notable ones, and those are questionable as to any harm the fish may cause humans.

Maybe one of our Canucks can show Giu the size tuna they catch off Newfoundland.

Try telling that to the Galicians !! Like the Basques and even the Catalans they do not like being Spanish and somehow I doubt they would want to be anything other than Galician.

Have to say I like them . Lovely people.
