Mark McNaughton and his family, of MDM Aqua Farms, raise tens of thousands of freshwater fish that are shipped to stores in Calgary and Edmonton, according to a Calgary Herald story, which details the popularity and practices of growing fish in the prairie province.
According to the report, the fish grow continuously and are easy to buy year-round. What’s more, tilapia, McNaughton’s specialty, is a popular fish to eat at home and in restaurants. At Calgary’s Catch Restaurant & Oyster Bar, for example, the chef takes advantage of the fish’s availability, sustainability and “culinary flexibility.”
