    I am sorry that my dinner choice sort of derailed this topic. I can tell you that bluefin tuna is only available directly from Massachusetts fishermen for a brief time and we are told it is sustainable. That said, in the interest of eGullet I will ask both of the purveyors of the bluefin that I have access to about the issue. One is at my farmer's market (Red's Best) and the other is on Cape Cod (Mac's Seafood). I am not sure how much information I will get from Red's but I know Mac's will be forthcoming. I will see Red's on Tuesday and Mac's the first week of October. After I talk to both of them I will start a new topic (unless one already exists, I'll look) where we can debate the merits of eating various controversial foodstuffs. I'm having fish for dinner tomorrow night. What kind, I don't know, but it won't be tuna. I'm in a fish share and we eat what they give us--usually a lesser known local white fish (please no pollock)

    I live in Massachusetts. The tuna fishery is highly regulated here. There is a strict quota and reporting system in place. The boats go out of Cape Ann or Cape Cod and fishing is done by harpoon or hand line The Atlantic bluefin tuna does not appear on the Massachusetts Divisions of Fisheries and Wildlife list of endangered, threatened, or species of concern. In fact, the National Marine Fisheries Service increased the catch limit this season from one fish to four fish per vessel per day.

    Stay safe. The photos and video from the Caribbean are horrifying. The damage is so bad to the island I love that I don't know when I will be able to return :-( A quick meal the other night before watching the Twin Peaks finale: scallop rolls. No lettuce because I'd been away for Labor Day weekend and not been to the food store yet Tonight: grilled chicken meatballs in a spicy soy sauce with bok choy and rice
  9. Final update for this trip. My sister and my niece went home Monday morning as niece started school today. The rest of us went to the Beachcomber to close it for the season. Fried clams, of course Steamers fishwich Oyster po boy Fish and chips Shrimp caesar Then everyone left except my husband and myself. We had dinner at Mac's Shack. Oysters Mexican (chiles, cilantro and lime) Ritz cracker crusted bluefish Roasted halibut with polenta, kale, and mushrooms with asparagus sauce Final meal, husband and I had lunch at the Pearl. Oysters Shrimp tacos Five spice crusted toro with sesame slaw And that's it! I'll be returning for 10 days in October, which will encompass the Wellfleet Oysterfest. Hopefully this year there will actually be oysters! Last year there was a salmonella outbreak and the beds were closed. Until next time, here's a photo of Cahoon Hollow, one of my favorite beaches for long walks.

    When I was a wee one, lobster and steamer clams were my favorite foods. An unsupervised all you can eat clambake at my aunt's house at age 7 resulted in my consumption of three lobsters and four full bowls of steamer clams and I also drank the broth, sand and all. As you can imagine, I got terribly sick thanks to my gluttony. I have had lobster only once since then, in 1997 at Biba restaurant in Boston. I ate one bite of their then famous lobster pizza. I still have not had another steamer clam dunked in broth than butter. Yum! That's my kind of dinner. Husband's plate of cockles in wine broth with lobster over garlic toast with fennel. Adapted from a recipe in this month's Bon Appetit. Mine had no lobster, obviously :-)
