TB,
We are soul mates (sole mates?). I grew up on the Cape and ate striper, blues, flounder, tuna and swordfish almost exclusively. The look and taste of soft, freshwater fish makes me gag.

I hear yah Bardo - always been a sea dweller, it's in our blood.

Aside from salmon (which breed in the ocean and swim upstream to spawn anyway), I'm not a fan of fresh water fish. I've caught, cooked and have eating trout, pike, perch, bass, etc., during camping trips with family and friends . . . but it does nothing for me. Plus fresh water fish is very boney.

seabreeze - As far as I know, Atlantic Salmon live their first few years in ocean water, breed and travel up stream to where they were born to spawn.

With servings like that I'd guess you'll want a pretty fair price. Perhaps you'll trade for an Oyster 49?

Think you have it a bit out of whack there TB. Atlantic Salmon are born upstream, move out to sea where they mature, then return to their home stream where they travel upstream to spawn and die. Eggs are fertilised upstream and hatch there. So the breeding is all upstream.


ps - while I'm not a huge fan of fresh water fish freshly caught Rainbow Trout is a yummy.
