How Local, Exactly?

People at work leave menus from nearby restaurants in our kitchen, and the one on top caught my eye, as it’s a new bistro that I’ve been wanting to check out. The tagline under the bistro’s name says “We use local, organic, free-range ingredients.” Sweet!

But when I got to the entrees section, their four entrees are: shrimp, rainbow trout, scallops, and mussels. There are shrimp farms here, but otherwise there must be an alternate definition of “local” that I’m not aware of.
