This is a serious question - my vegetarian girlfriend really really wants to cheat on her ethics with a fish fry, but to alleviate her guilt she wants it to be local fish raised ethically and environmentally blah blah blah.
Does anyone do it?
well..considering that wild fish are potentially more "un-organic" than farm raised fish brings up a lot of questions as to what is "organic".
Fish farming isn't like free range grazing beef/pork/poultry. I wish I knew more about it...one thing I do know is there is a lot of misinformation regarding "wild" and "natural" when it comes to buying fish. Fish farms can also cause a lot of problems..depending on where they are located.
My best suggestion is to call restaurants and ask..your best places to start would be anyone who serves bluegill/perch/walleyes..as the chances of them being locally raised/caught/grown are higher.
I'd be interested to know your findings..
