5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.
You may recognize the above gentleman as Chef Rick Moonen, owner and executive chef of RM Seafood in Las Vegas, author of "Fish Without a Doubt" and more recently, the runner-up on season two of Bravo's "Top Chef Masters."
A vocal advocate for sustainable fishing and seafood, Moonen has a "Big Five Theory" - essentially saying restaurants in the United States typically serve only five groups of fish: tuna, bass, snapper, cod and salmon. Keeping up with this belief, Moonen provides some seafood substitutions in order to give the "Big Five" a break.

5. If at a restaurant and the menu says "bass," ask your server what type of bass it is.
