No doubt about it: wild Alaska salmon is delicious! You'll find it fresh for a few short months each summer and we are busily stocking our seafood departments with the tastiest varieties found throughout Alaska.

Growing up in Hawaii, I had access to some of the most delicious, freshest fish imaginable. Unfortunately, salmon was not one of them! I only had access to previously frozen or canned salmon. So, at the time, salmon had too strong of a flavor - kind of fishy and mushy.

End of the Line, a documentary based on journalist Charles Clover's book of the same name, is showing at a handful of film festivals and will play in some cities on June 8th-World Oceans Day. I had a chance to watch the film and have a few thoughts to share.
The film begins with beautiful footage of marine life and quickly (and graphically) moves toward its key message: The oceans are overfished and fish populations are in trouble. Some of the most well-known and well-respected marine scientists are interviewed in the film to confirm these bleak trends.

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), the government agency that's responsible for managing fisheries in U.S. waters, is asking for public comments on proposed policies for addressing what's known in the industry as illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing (a.k.a. pirate fishing) and bycatch (unintentional or incidental catch) of protected species like whales and sea turtles. Okay, there are a lot of acronyms in that first sentence (I even left some out) but the point is: as citizens we have an opportunity to express our opinion about how these public resources are managed.
