Few know how delicious this sustainably farmed fish can be, but ocean adventurer Fabien Cousteau has said "we have to make the barramundi sexy" to help us shift our diets away from overfished and contaminated fish stocks. We asked Australis Aquaculture to help.
Barramundi is a gourmet, sustainably harvested fish native to Australia and now being farmed in the United States. Its sweet, buttery, delicate and moist flavor has been compared to red snapper, Dover sole, sea bass and other premium white fish. It is available in restaurants throughout the country including Legal Sea Foods, McCormick & Schmick, Red Lobster and Oceanaire. Also available in select Whole Foods, Safeway, Vons, Giant, Costco, Schnuck's, Dierberg's and other fine markets. For more information, visit thebetterfish.com.
