It's off the hook! Pacifico Aquaculture True Striped Bass has been officially certified by the American Heart Association's Heart-Check Food Certification Program.
Consuming EPA (not that EPA) and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of this super bass provides 952 mgs/85 grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
(Could they have sent us a blurrier image? Seriously.)
And... Pacifico True Striped Bass is "thoughtfully raised in the clear, cool open-ocean waters adjacent to the marine sanctuary Isla Todos Santos off the coast of Ensenada in Baja California, Mexico."
Fancy! Plus, this fish has a "clean mouthfeel (we hope not like Listerine) and semi-firm texture (just like us!) making it an ideal fish for raw and cooked preparations including grilling, poaching, and braising, yielding a flaky fish with crispy skin."
Great. This particular striped bass actually sounds like it would make a good friend. We might have a hard time putting this in our mouth. Thanks, Disney, for that...
But for those that give zero effs, here's a yummy striped bass recipe. You'd better use Pacifico True Striped Bass...
