Change from Salmon to Mackerel!

As mackerel is actually one of my favourite fish, this isn't a problem for me, but here is a full news story on salmon I just got sent. 

I didn't realise salmon was a traditional 4th July dish. Having been to the Northern Chilean fjords and seen the hoards of fish farms squeezed into a small fjord (let alone the damage that must be happening to the bottom fauna), salmon has not been on my plate for a while. There really are fish out there that are both better for you and better for the environment. If you don't have one, MBARI has a "Seafood Watch Guide" - which you can order from them for free. This is a good website too from the Marine Conservation Society.
