Climate Change may be stimulating Pacific Coast Fisheries

The extreme weather swings experienced by Californians the past six years: a historic drought followed by drenching winter storms caused millions of dollars in damage to many cities. However, it may be sustaining many California Fishing Communities. The impact of climate change may be stimulating the population & price of some fish.
 
California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in more than a decade, thanks to heavy rain & snow that ended the state’s historic drought.
 
It’s a sharp reversal for chinook salmon, also known as king salmon, an iconic fish that helps sustain many Pacific Coast fishing communities.
 
Capitalize on the quality & cost of this delicate fish:
 
Salmon fillets are the most commonly used cut of the fish, and for good reason: removing the pin bones is simple, and the cut lends itself to all methods of cooking. A fillet can be a small section of a boned side, intended to serve one or two people, or it or an entire boned side to serve a crowd.
 
With or without skin? Certain methods, like pan-frying fillets, are designed to give you crispy skin & the skin is delicious. For poaching: skin can be removed before cooking & discarded. #fish #kitchen #kitchen #food #restaurant #cooking #delicious #sustainable #flavor #foodservice
