Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! We are very blessed to be able to share the American tradition of Independence Day with all of our customers.
We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday. Please remember that fireworks may be potentially dangerous and to make sure all fires are completely out!

On another serious note, we’ve been aware of some work being done to bring Genetically Engineered fish to your table for some time now. While at first more hype than actual action, the idea has taken hold with a company located in Canada. Essentially, salmon is being farm-raised with the addition of growth hormone being injected into the eggs, causing the fish to grow 2-4 times faster than a typical farm-raised fish. This is scary, unhealthy, and in our opinion, very dangerous territory to be crossing into. It’s important to us to keep everyone informed and aware that healthy, wild and natural options are available, and always the best choice.

Currently, the FDA is considering an option to open the US markets to such genetically modified fish, so taking care to carefully read and understand the purchases you are making is vital to not only the success of the industry, but also the health risks of farmed fish.
