Seafood for the Future (SFF) is recommending Pacific mackerel as a nutritious seafood option for consumers to help broaden seafood selections and reduce pressures on the most consumed seafood, like shrimp, tuna, and salmon. Pacific mackerel is considered one of the more nutritious fish because it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Pacific mackerel is a local fish caught right off the coast of Southern California. The fishery is well-managed to ensure healthy stocks and minimal bycatch.
SFF teamed up with SAVOR… and State Fish Company to demonstrate a Pacific mackerel dish at the Aquarium’s Urban Ocean Festival on May 3 and 4. The dish was popular with both adults and children alike.
