What to Order from Monterey Restaurants: On Sustainable and Wild Seafood

What better way to enjoy the bounty of the Pacific than by dining at your favorite restaurants in Monterey Bay? Before you stop by local hotspots like Cafe Fina though, you should know to ask where the restaurant got their fish – was it farmed or caught in the wild? For the most part, wild caught salmon are typically healthier and safer than those bred in farms, especially with the rise of controversies regarding fish farming processes. For one, for farmed fish to remain healthy until they are ready for harvesting, certain antibiotics and pesticides are mixed in with their food. These substances include polychlorinated biphenyls, dibutyltin, and polybrominated diphenyl ether. While such compounds keep bacteria at bay, they can also lead to a number of health complications in humans.
