Whoohoo! This is an American croaker I’m gonna have for dinner. How do I know? Because now at Giant, all fish are tagged with place of origin. You can choose your seafood by the ocean is came from.
I’m not sure if Safeway does this too – I do remember an effort to make this tagging national but I don’t know if its enacted. Regardless, I love the idea. We all should know where our food comes from.
Better yet, I’d love to have fish sold whole, head, eyes and all, not as amorphous lumps of meat. Partly because I love the head, and partly because I can’t stand those who want their fish filets separate of their source.
