Striped Bass

Ocean-based aquaculture, Baja California, Mexico

Pacifico striped bass is the only "true" (non-hybrid) striped bass that is farmed. With a nod to the wine industry and the concept of terroir, the Pacifico touts its mastery of meroir, the idea that the sum of the effects of a local environment—such as climate, local nutrients, and other geographical factors—affects its quality and gives it a distinct taste unique to its oceanic environment. Pacifico striped bass has received a 4-star BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) designation, the highest aquaculture award available.

The fish has a semi-firm texture with skin that crisps well when sautéed. This striped bass can be used in many preparations: raw (as sushi), baked, sautéed, or poached. Chefs including Rick Bayless, Stephanie Izard, and Thomas Keller have used it on their menus. Low mercury level. Kosher.

Mahi Mahi

Hook and line caught, Ecuador

Mahi mahi is also called dolphinfish or dorado, but don't confuse it with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong."

Because female mahi can produce up to a million eggs each time they spawn, and mahi are fast growers, their population is both stable and sustainable. Their pinkish translucent flesh has a sweet, delicate flavor, moderately firm texture, and large, moist flakes.

The Ecuadorian fishery is part of a Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) and hopes to gain MSC certification in about a year. To date, improvements to the fishery include the reduction of the sea turtle bycatch. Seafood Watch rates mahi mahi a "Good Alternative.” Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
