Living on the Pacific Coast, we are blessed with an abundant local and sustainable seafood supply, with plenty to choose from: salmon, halibut, clams, oysters, scallops, sablefish, sole, crabs, prawns, just to name a few!
You can head to your local grocery store, local fish store, farmers markets and even to the pier to buy freshly caught fish directly from the fishermen.
