American favorite seafood are salmon, tuna and shrimp. They consumed about 21.7 kg (48 pound) per capita per year.

But, you might not know that these marine species are not sustainable. Their population are depletion due to many causes, few of them are:

- over fishing
- over consumed
- diseases
- environmental degeneration

Consume “trash fish” instead of favorite ones is one of ways to help reducing of commercial fish in nature.

What? Trash fish?

Trash” or waste is not what its literally mean. Trash fish, like other fish that they are rich in protein and nutritional rich too.

What we call “trash fish” is actually “by catching fish.” Not in purpose to be caught. They are abundance in market, thus, the price will be cheap.

Butter fish is one of “trash fish” which have great taste if cooked with proper recipe. The price is very cheap, less than US$ 1.00 per pound.

Just for comparison, tuna fish worth for US$ 30 per pound, and salmon US$ 9.99 per pound.

However, salmon costs depend very much on:
- species
- location where it from: Alaska, Norway, Denmark or other countries
- caught in the river or ocean
- wild or aquaculture salmons.

Moreover, I myself found butter fish in an ethnic grocery. The meat is white, also called as “white tuna.” I grilled the fish sometimes. Delicious for me.

Have you eaten trash fish? What species do you eat?

  11. Interesting. I have a hard time getting excited about fish, in general. It's not so much that I won't eat it. It's just not my usual preference. It is good to learn about sustainability. A book you may enjoy: The Third Plate by Dan Barber.

  15. Growing up on the coast with a family that fished as a hobby, I’ve eaten all kinds of fish. I think the main way to get people interested in such fish is to learn how to prepare them.

    1. I agree with you....It is seem that many relevant agencies promote the recipes of "waste fishes" now.
