most of the time. Newport is a small fishing village and the boats go out for halibut, ling cod and tuna. you can buy it right from the fishermen, which is lovely. they closed our salmon season this year. devasting for the fishermen who depend on it so I'm very surprised and happy to see so much wild salmon in the markets. we have Coho and Sockeye right now coming in from Canada and Alaska and at $6.50 a lb it's a deal!
