Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

And there was a health scare a few years ago concerning the chemicals added to the food to make the flesh more pink, plus, intensivly farmed animals have more organisms and parasites which are then treated with more chemicals which are passed on to us.

In fact BE logical.

I've never tried farm fish but hear the same from everyone. Just give the self-righteous hippie groups some time and they will make a big stink about how we are being cruel to the fish robin them of the ocean blah blah and that will take care of the farm fish too

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

farmed fish is the pale one in the market, just next to the one they label as wild, which has the color and flavor......
i love catching my own

It is probably due to those "hippie" groups that you can fish in a lot of the US waters. If we left it to the "corporate" groups, all our waters would be waste lands. Thank god for the hippie!

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

Mee too - I say want to eat meat - catch it, kill it, clean it, prepare it.

Half the world would end up vegetarian.

We only eat so much meat because all the dirty job is done by others.

And its those groups who put me outa wrk. Every year they make more laws and chase more fishermen away cause green peace type terrorist pressure them to do so....look at sandiego, tuna fishermen built that city now they are kicken us outa harbours and taken away the one thing most of us know and that's how to fish. It goes much deeper then what's right for the planet. What's right for man and how do you compromise?

I'm sorry to hear that, but what is right for the planet is right for man, because we can not exist without the precious eco systems. The economy needs to be way way down the list.

Re: Deep-Sea Fishing Not Sustainable - Study

Seems to me that the planet has been around a lot longer than man. If you can believe what they say, man has been on the planet for some million years or so. So far, the planet has not kicked us off yet.

True, not yet. But the more species we eradicate, the less our odds for long term survival.

Being from pig farming stock (my dad), I found a comment made by my Cultural Anthropology professor back in the 70's quite interesting. He claimed human tasted just like pork...kind of food for thought you might say. But I do like my seafood.
Two interesting books people here might be interested in.

Oryx and Craike by Margaret Attwood
Climate Wars by Gwynne Dyer

I have heard these same arguments for the last 50 years, or so. As it stands today, there should be no life in the oceans, at all. Oceans should have been void of life 20 years ago. Not to mention we should be in the middle of an ice age. But when the globe started warming again, they cried global warming. When the warming stopped, they changed it to "global climate change"! Criminy! The climate has been changing since the beginning. Before life, before people.
These people have no credibility anymore!
