Have you tasted Hawaiian Kona Kampachi fish? I went to Central Market to get some fish for kick off tomorrow and the fish guy shared that he has several ideal protein junkies come in daily for this fish. It has more Omega 3's than any fish and 40 g of protein per 6 oz.....this shocked me! Best mercury or contaminates! It is a bit pricey but he said the ip'ers that he has say it keeps them full.

Has anyone tried it?

not yet - have tried several new fishes, including tillapia, that was great. I tend to like the mild ones, though I love salmon. Most of them are so spendy that I have to limit it, but the tillapia was cheaper. I loved the shrimp too, although my coach pointed out that it is higher in cholesteral, so I limit that.

If you try it - let us know how it was!

Never heard if it. Did you buy some? How pricey?

Hmmmm....I hit up Central Market (Plano, TX) every week and will have to try that one out. My dad was the Meat Market manager at H-E-B for years (just retired), I'll have to ask him if he's heard of it.

Booo - just called up my Central Market and the Seafood Manager told me they are out and not sure when they will get the next shipment since there's only one fishery in Hawaii and it is in high demand. I'll have to jump when I see it on the fish board next time!

From Google:
"Kona Kampachi is getting a lot of attention these days. With concern about sustainability, nutrition, and food safety rising, Kona Kampachi represents an ecologically responsible natural resource, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and free of detectable mercury."
