Barramundi and Weekend Specialties 2.5.15 February 04 2015 Posted in

Aquaculture has gotten a bad rap over the past few years. Concerns about the environmental impact of farming operations; the various forms of feeds, dyes and antibiotics that different farms use; and the carbon-efficiency of aquaculture have taken center stage in the farmed vs. wild debate. And while we agree that there are farms that you should avoid, we also feel that responsible aquaculture is an important part of achieving the sustainability balance.  The fine folks at Australis Aquaculture are a perfect example of aquaculture done right with their signature farmed Barramundi from Turner Falls, MA.  What makes the Barramundi such a great example of sustainable aquaculture?  Glad you asked:

How is it farmed? -  Barramundi are raised in closed in-land re-circulating tanks.  99% of Australis’ water is recycled and any remaining fish waste is donated to fertilizer to local farmers.  What’s more, in-land tanks help reduce fish escapes, which can be harmful to wild fish populations and the surrounding environment.

What are the inputs? - Barramundi are not given antibiotics or any other additives, because they don’t need them.  Fish are stocked in low densities to prevent stress.  What’s more, unlike other fish, Barramundi are well suited to be in close quarters.  As wild fish in the Outback, Barramundi often find themselves trapped in ponds as river beds dry up in the summer season.   

What is the feed ratio/how are the fish fed? - Feed ratio refers to the amount of dry feed it takes to produce one pound of fish.  When considering resource shortages, ratios that are far above 1:1 don’t make much sense as you’re taking more out of the environment to produce less (for example, consider farmed Bluefin tuna which can get as high as 15:1).  Barramundi has a feed ratio of 1.76:1.  Barramundi feed comes from certified sustainable wild fishers as well as non-seafood sources.  

The sustainability of a particular fish is relatively moot if it doesn’t taste good.   Lucky for you, Barramundi fits the bill, with a mild, buttery flavor.  It’s also has high levels of Omega-3s.  Barramundi will be available this weekend.  Help us support sustainable aquaculture by checking it out!

Tasting Menu Series and Weekend Specialties 1.29.15 January 28 2015 Posted in

In case you haven’t already noticed, there’s a lot of great food and wine being served at Cull&Pistol.  There’s also always a ton of great seasonal specialties coming into the retail market on a daily basis.  Given these two aforementioned facts, it’s only fitting that we roll out the tasting menu.  We’re pleased to announce the first iteration of our ongoing tasting menu series at Cull&Pistol available nightly from Thursday-Sunday.  The 5 course tasting menus will feature the very best of what the retail store has to offer with exceptional wine pairings and will change frequently.  First up, the Alsatian Wine Dinner!  Check out the menu here.

While the tasting menu seems like a no brainer for the weekend, (we assume you can’t eat the tasting menu every night, however if you’re so inclined we’ll welcome you with open arms) we have some excellent finfish options available from Hawaii to get you over the cold and snow.
