The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the lead federal agency responsible for stewardship of offshore living marine resources, plans to survey recreational saltwater fisherman. The purpose is so that the agency may improve its understanding of anglers’ expectations and how they may change as more fish stocks recover. With this information, the agency may better plan fisheries’ management and plan for additional outreach and education of recreational saltwater fishermen.

The announcement for the survey, in the form of a proposal for the Office of Management and Budget, can be viewed here. More information regarding the agency’s responsiblities for marine ecosystems can be found here.

Weekend Recipes from ShoreThing


Grilled Local Mahi Mahi with Down Island Rice and Avocado Mousse 4 servings
4 Mahi Mahi Fillets (locally caught)
1 ½ cups Basmati Rice
½ Pineapple diced small
½ Red bell pepper diced small
1 Tbs Cilantro
2 oz Lime juice
2 Garlic cloves
4 oz Extra virgin olive oil
6 oz Pineapple juice
1 can Coconut milk unsweetened
4 Scallions diced small
1 Tsp Cane sugar
2 Haas Avocados peeled and seeded

Methods:
Down Island Rice: Cook rice using coconut milk and water according to instructions on package. In a separate pan use one oz extra virgin olive oil and add diced pineapple and cook until well caramelized. Once caramelized, add pineapple juice and cane sugar. Simmer until syrupy. Add red bell peppers, half the scallions and toss. Add the pineapple mixture to the cooked basmati rice.
Avocado Mousse: In a blender or food processor add lime juice, avocado, garlic, half the scallions and cilantro. Blend until light and fluffy. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Add water if consistency is too thick).
Marinade for Mahi: (Optional, though recommended): I learned this from my good friends in Barbados. Apply 45 minutes before cooking.
Ingredients:
1 medium yellow onion pureed in blender
2 Tsp of Garam Masala
1 zest of 1 lime
2 oz Olive oil
Add the above ingredients into the blender and puree and mix. In a non reactive bowl toss your Mahi Mahi with the Garam Masala and onion mixture. Let sit in marinade 30-45 minutes before grilling.

The plate presentation should be on the bottom, Mahi, then a dollop of mousse on the top! Enjoy…
