When I read this article, it made me want to try caviar! I’ve never had it before, but it’s totally changed my mind about it. But that’s not why I’m posting about it.
Right now The Little Pearl simply sells sustainable caviar. You can read all about them in detail on their site or in the article. But here’s the Cliff’s Notes version.
Tired of the caviar that’s out on the market, Richard Brauman started The Little Pearl in 2005. His goal: “source caviar from farms and fisheries where fish are handled humanely, harvested year-round and fed a combination of their natural diet and commercially produced food pellets.” (CNN.com)
Now he wants to create sustainable fish farms. He’s already got the process figured out (again, details in the article), but he needs the funding. This month he’s one of many in the Pepsi Refresh Project. If you want to see healthier fish farms in existance click here, vote, and then spread the word.
I think it’s a great idea! You hear so much about how fish farms are horrible for the fish and they eat crap, sometimes literally, but wild fish populations are dwindling and we shouldn’t be fishing them either. I think this is if not a solution, a step in the right direction. Now I’m off to spread the word!
