If I did not have those sources, I would cook/serve/eat very little fish.
thanks! so farm raised supposebly not a better choice versus wild caught and wild caught can be from the ocean of shared radiation, i am confused.

Thanks for bringing up this subject mommy, it's certainly been on my mind, since I live on the Pacific coast and mainly buy fresh caught fish. Although I have a passion for Sushi, for me it's out of the question for now.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is requiring that any food entering the United States from northern Japan to be checked for radiation and insists that to date, all fish that has been imported from Japan has tested negative and is safe.
Despite their safety claims, only time will tell. Yet another tragedy.
Here is the bigger picture, and well worth the time to watch this video.....

What We Do

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Life with out sushi- no way. Ask your fish guy ( monger) where the seafood comes from. We get very little fish from japan. I did buy a ton of nori sheets when the nuclear plant blew. Dilution is the solution to pollution. The ocean will reduce the radiation danger.
If you can spell it I can cook it.

Don't worry about the tilapia.

Contrary to a widely popular belief, tilapia is not seafood. It is a fresh water fish and most of the tilapia consumed by Americans is farmed right here in the good ol' US of A or imported from Central and South America. The U.S. alone produced 2.5 tons of tilapia last year. It is the third most popular fish in the U.S.

As far as I can ascertain, tilapai is farmed throughout Southeast Asia, but Japan does not farm or sell tilapia. They import it from Taiwan, China, Indonesia and Thailand.

Welcome to Western New York, where the only kind of weather we have is inclement!
