bye bye black cod?

edgrimley | Nov 7, 201110:53 AM

Was at the Temescal farmer's market this Sunday in search of black cod or sablefish. Their $13.95/lb fish has been a staple of ours for years now.

The guy at the fish stand said we probably won't be seeing it again soon, and if we do it will be much more expensive. He says most of the sable is getting bought up by China right now.

The combination of taste, value, healthy quality of the fish and sustainability made it almost too good to be true.

I wonder if we will see this dynamic with other quality fish, like Alaska and Pacific salmon.

Anyone know more about this?
