Take a break from the corn dogs and deep-fried Twinkies and get some fish into your California State Fair food experience this Saturday for Aquaculture Day. Culinary students from Cosumnes Oaks High School and local chefs are going to prepare sustainable seafood from California, including tilapia, trout, abalone and sturgeon. They'll share the bounty with fairgoers as well, with demos at 1, 2, 4 and 5 p.m.
Aquaculture Day also includes a petting zoo of sorts, but of the fish kind. Student farmers from Watsonville High School will show off 2 to 3 foot long sturgeon and visitors will be allowed to pet them.
