When I first wrote about Wolf Fish for you, (see Tautog, Wolf Fish, Black Cod and a Fine Kettle of Fish) we had happened upon some at our fishmonger. It was bycatch he was offering. He knew we'd love to try something different.
Well I'd never heard of it before and was sort of sad to learn how it was reaching dangerously low populations. In that post I also shared the horrible story of a bad fishmonger in Annapolis that sells endangered fish bought from pirates, while promoting it as sustainable. Horrendous.
Today's Green Blog notes that the poor wolf fish is on it's way out, like permanent-style. As in EXTINCT. So they are imposing a ban on it to spare the species. So sad, but we must let the stocks recover.
