P.S. On Eating Skate -- and an Impressively Quick Reply
Wanted to add this...because by the time I finished writing and posting the previous entry, this response was in my inbox. Incredible!
Dear Ms. Heller:
Thank you for your inquiry regarding skate fish. This is the response I received from our Director of Purchasing. "We source Winter Skate, not one of the species mentioned...this species is not endangered and is fished by permit only with a quotable catch to ensure its sustainability."
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback.
