    Yes. There is wild spawn, which is what I am eating. And it is spawned onto seaweed of varying types. The is also a cultivated spawn, where they capture a school of herring and hold them in a large pen in the ocean and hang Kelp leaves in the pen, and force the herring to spawn on the large keel leaves. The cultivated spawn is usually wider and thicker than the wild in part because of the forced spawn and because it is on great big wide leaves of kelp. Most of the cultivated stuff is for commercial purposes and is brined on site.

    Actually mileage wise, I'm not that far from Shaun, it's the coordination of the fishes cycle and Shaun's work schedule that would be a major pain in the arse.

    Flying here is a pretty straight shot for ya Roy, but the road trip is kind of a silly distance. Yes coordinating fish with my schedule is not an easy feat. Some day I will pick some, pack it at night and go to Vancouver with it. I have friends there that miss not being able to harvest any. That would be the easiest way to get together for a feed.

    Just knocked-back a 'scorpion-tail' from a local spot.
    Trim a jap and slide it up a shrimp. Fill with cheese batter, and fry.

    They make their own Ranch too!

    Those are pretty good. The jalapeño kind of kills the taste of the shrimp though unless they are pretty mild. Is that Gulf shrimp or the import ones. I have no idea what they do to the import prawns and shrimp but the do not have anywhere near the flavor of the local one. Half of them could be made from tofu and you'd never be able to tell, except for the tail.

    Chicken, pig, cow, and deer are as exotic as I get. Oh, and chicken spawn.

    Looks tasty Rez, will try anything from the sea. Funny thing is we don't target small fish here at all except whitebait. Don't know why but they are such good eating. All of the sardines we eat come from Canada, and recently discovered smoked herring, or kippers as they are called, also from Canada. Delicious in a fish pie.

    I'll have to remember that.

    Should get a puzzled look from the boss when I tell her to put some "chicken spawn" on the grocery list.
