It really is difficult.  Almost everything sold here in the States is manufactured outside of the country.

I make my own sashimi, how's that for being American?

Sushi grade -  What a hoax.  Unless you're talking yellowtail snapper or other distant exotics from deep water then yeah, but the others are easy to handle.

were u the one asking about how to prepare sushi? or was that someone else or another forum?

i cant recall




to orig poster:

if u wanna take it another step, try a conscious mind to preserve the environment, for instance a pair of jeans usually travels 24,000 miles to get to your home.

I've decided to support my fellow countrymen/women too.

I needed a new lawn mower.

Did I go down to Home Depot or Lowes and pay $500 for a new, made in China, piece of garbage new lawnmower?

HELL NO!!!

I pulled my two old beat-to-garbage mowers out of my shed.  Took them to an enterprising young man who rebuilds and restores these things.  Paid him $300 and now I have TWO fully refurbished machines instead of paying those Corporate people good money for ONE cheap new machine.

I FEEL REALLY GOOD ABOUT THAT TODAY.

Yellowtails are richly abundant on the deeper reefs (30-120') of South Florida and The Bahamas. I catch them in 60' during the summer within sight of land off Northeast Florida. Delicious, but no better than the more common vermillion snapper.

No garbage. Can we talk about this. I speared a yellow tail while diving in both Miami and Honduras. I sashimi'd him while he was still flopping on the deck.

Now this was a the typical yellow tail with an actual yellow horizontal line from nose to tail(they are everywhere on the reef). Are we talking about the same 30 foot fish? I know the deep water yellow snapper is deeeeeeeep. That's why they cost so damn much to eat. Who the darn is going that far to spear one fish? Then haul it up an hope the men in grey suits dob't take it.

He tasted really good.

You guys ever had raw conche snail fresh off of a dive?

Most of it is poaching which I will never do but it is the caviar of the sea.

One day I will farm them and stone crabs will never be harassed again.

Japan is where the market is set.

Bluefin tuna for example. Known as the Porsche of the sea and Japan gets the top hits right off the friggin illegal net boats.

Porsche because they are as expensive, as fast, as big and as desirable.

you're willing to fork over a .50 premium on every dollar for MADE IN AMERICA

why on Earth would you do that?

what do you have against people that work in other countries?  How about your petroleum products? ONly going to buy MADE IN AMERICA petro? where do you buy american gas?

i don't see imports as the reason why economic times are tough. Seems to me, the weak dollar is what is crushing us. We're not importing weak dollar policy, that is one of the many things we still do make right here at home

i like gooses post, and that's the kind of things i like to do to help the local economy.   and i need a mower, my 48" took a garbage on me

And who is fixing your lawn mower?

Right, imported labor at a low hourly rate - then the half the money is sent back to Mexico.

Not that simple.
