Yukon salmon @ oceanaire

Hey looky, it's a "news story" taken straight off a press release -- just like they do at daily newspapers! It's only a matter of time before you'll be wading through ponderous "profiles" of VIP chefs here. But I digress. Have you noticed: Copper River salmon has entered the backlash zone? People are saying too-much-hype. The pump is thus primed for a new, harder-to-get, pricier salmon. Oceanaire is bringin' it on: Yukon River king salmon, said to be rarer, intenser flavor, and previously hogged by the Japanese. The true Copper-vs-Yukon showdown is all about fat content; more is better. Yukons swim 2000 miles to spawn = 20-30% fat. Wimpy Coppers swim 350 miles and thus = a svelte 12%. Anyway, back to the press release: Yukon River king salmon at Oceanaire, starting this week, 13340 dallas pkwy, 972-759-2277

I'm not sure it would be worth swimming 2,000 miles, let alone 350, for salmon sex. Those be some randy creatures!

I was thinking more about cornering the market on them. Like, if i can kill most of them then suckers like oceanaire will pay big bucks.
