San Diego Swordfish (and other fish)- Are there tumors, and how do San Diego's fishmongers deal with them?

"Mercury is not the only metal which can form organometallic compounds, same happens for example with Pb or Sn. In addition metal atoms also bind/chelate directly to proteins not only MeHg."

Well, DuH.

I knew that.

I'm sorry, that's about 55 minutes longer than my attention span.

Can you boil into a list, like Top Ten Points about Taste? You know, like a HuffPo or a Salon?

Thanks.

Of course not.

Just like paving paradise to put up a parking lot, we cannot do these things in a vacuum. And if I didn't make myself clear, I'm not arguing for trashing the planet.

But I would like to know what those tumors and parasites are, and how (if) they are caused by humans. I don't make those assumptions either way.

Parasites have been around for a much longer time than humans.

Let's be fair- I suspect some of these parasites have been around well before humans began spoiling the ocean. And tumors? Who knows.

Not arguing for trashing the planet, but I'm an advocate of critical thinking.

Show me the science.

Bait! Fish!

Maybe he's trying to lure you!

There's a new San Diego thread this discussion could move to...

This thread is to discuss tumors on swordfish (and other fish) in San Diego, and specifically, how do the fishmongers in San Diego identify and process swordfish (and other fish) that may (or may not) have tumors and/or parasites here locally in San Diego.

So- does anyone in San Diego have experience with swordfish, (and other fish) and can comment on the San Diego fishmarket in general? In San Diego?

Swordfish Tumors ?

So- fish with tumors in it that show up at your place are discarded?

Swordfish Tumors ?

THere was a reference in another thread regarding tumors in swordfish.

Might there be a fish expert out there who can help us understand more about this?

I'll start a new thread- I don't think (under the new rules) it will get booted.

Yup.

Here's what I find most interesting about the RedO project: The timeline. A quick look at the UT today says the place is due to open mid-2016.

That's a LONG way away to begin an announcement now, and represents a significant investment in the long-term PR campaign. To me, it appears they're ready to throw down a lot of cash to promote well in advance of the opening.

And as we know, a lot can happen in a period that long.

Who, ME?

Dated and ignorant? Oh, pish POSH!

But for the record: The fact that retailers add additional markup to a product does not mean the brewer gets more money- only the retailer.

The brewer will pull the product because the inflated price damages the brand and it's targeted position in the marketplace.

And, simply because the "craft beer" craze has been around for 17 years does not mean it's not *primarily* fluff-based. I believe it's a marketplace, just like wine, where percieved value is the primary driver of its market share. I believe very few people are capable of parsing some of the subtle differences in flavor, yet (like wine) millions of people position themselves as connoisseurs.

There are certainly differences, and of course there are varying levels of quality in the market. Beleive it or not, I enjoy fine brews now and then, including Alpine- have a fondness for their Duet.

But the biggest differentiating factor between these brands is the marketing.

Ah. So it was a mistake to reply to the Catalina reference?

Dec 15, 2014

Yes, you made the claim that *most of the swordfish sold at Catalina* was "riddled with tumors" and I've not yet seen any justification for this.

Howevermuch I'd enjoy seening you juggling flares in an aircraft.

"Scotch Ale called Dirty Bastard and a barrel aged version of it called Backwoods Bastard."

Then gave them a enormous pricetag and called their customers "Dumb Bastards".

OMG, I'm SO sorry. I stepped WAY over the bounds in a pathetic attempt at humor.

Do forgive me...

"An Old Ale, which seems appropriate for Fakey."

Aged to perfection.

Well, I've read your links, and don't see a single reference to the proprietor you mentioned- can you help me find it?

In the meantime, I'll attempt to "get with it".

On what factual basis do you make the claim that most of the swordfish is riddled with tumors?

MrsName dragged me out today to a new place called Back to Roots- 3318 5th Ave. Artisinal (cliché, I know) foods, Praeger Bros bread, Niman ranch meats, Jamon Iberico, etc, etc.

Looks like this will be a nice place.

Visit to La Jolla

Stayed at (where else?) The Claremont and most memorable was Comal, Oliveto, and La Note.

Stevie Wonder tour was all Songs in the Key Of Life and featured India Arie. His daughter who had a brief vocal appearance on "Isn't She Lovely" in 1976 also sang onstage. Over three hours of performing- incredible show.

Pizzeria Mozza - closing

Used to be a Rubio's's at 4th and E- right next door to the hidden studio one of San Diego's most prestigious commercial/advertising photography venues on the third floor of the former Security Pacific Bank HQ at 5th and E.

But that was 1989??
