<p>Do you know if this fish was wild-caught, or was it farmed?</p>
<p>If it was <i>wild-caught</i>:<br />
Do you know which ocean it came from, and if so, which port it was landed in?<br />
How was it caught? (With a hook and line? A trawl net?)</p>
<p>And if it was <i>farmed</i>:<br />
Was this fish farmed domestically, or was it imported (and if so, from which country)?<br />
If you can find fishmongers or res­taurateurs who know, and care, enough to answer your questions–stick with them.</p>
