"Wild" Salmon at Comme Ca? Not really...

brettdaddy | May 29, 2008 02:36 PM

I dined at Comme Ca last night and on their menu they had a "Wild Salmon" dish. Out of curiosity I asked the waitress where the wild salmon was from, Copper River, Columbia River, etc... She said something like "Well, its raised in Scotland in ocean pens, so its kinda like of a wild-farmed salmon cause its in the ocean like a wild salmon..." Uhhh, isnt that how all farmed salmon is raised? In an aquafarm in the ocean? Am I wrong or are they being very deceptive in advertising this as wild salmon when it is actually a farmed salmon? I mean with wild salmon at $30-$40 per pound at the market there should be some clarity!
