When we decided to make a video about farmed Bluefin tuna, it was with trepidation. This is not the perfect fish, it could harldy be considered sustainable (they ear a lot of other fish). But it's a step in the direction of killing the last of the wild Bluefin tuna. This fishery is the only place in the world that spawns Bluefin, so instead of taking away from the world resources, its adding to it. Watch the video, make your own decision, but know that it is delicious.

Asian Carp are quickly becoming the invasive species to beat. They are showing up and taking over in rivers across the country and threatening native species by out-competing fish for the plankton that forms the base of the aquatic food chain. The fish may be present in the Twin Cities as well. What better way to head home, than to meet with a fisherman who was tackling the very fish who would soon be greeting us from in a few days? We went out with a fisherman on the Peoria River and got to see what our future hopefully doesn't hold.
Take a trip on a Maine lobster boat, where breaking peoples legs when they step on your turf is still ok (sort of). Follow it up with some blueberry pie and a lobster bake!
