Remember when Paul Prudhomme (heck, do you remember Paul Prudhomme?) almost single handedly wiped out an entire population of a species of fish when his recipe for blackened red fish became popular?

But this time it isn’t because of a currently-hot chef and a specialized recipe. The warming ocean waters are sending the fish north in search of cooler temps. The implications aren’t just culinary, they’re economic. And they aren’t going to change anytime soon. You don’t have to agree about the reasons for the warming waters to know that this is a big problem.
