Question for seafood experts, or fish mongers ...

ipsedixit | Aug 29, 2008 09:16 AM

What's the difference between "wild caught" and "wild"? Is there one?

I noticed the other day, a sign advertising "wild caught filets".

Is there a difference between, say, a "wild caught salmon" and just "wild salmon"?

I mean, is it possible that a fish be "wild" but not "wild caught"? Like, could a fishing boat go out to sea looking for wild fish, and then use "farmed" techniques to catch the fish?
