Over a fish dinner, Paul will answer the question, "Which Bass is Best?" He
will cover issues surrounding the name "bass" -- how it is used by
seafood marketers to cover over the way fishmongers substitute one
declining wild species for another and then finally swap in farmed
fish. He will also talk about issues surrounding aquaculture; how does
one judge a good product? what are the real costs of aquaculture? why
are their no organic standards for farmed fish in America?
