bmtv60 Fisheries and Fish Choices

The latest report on the state of the world’s fishing stock doesn’t get much press. Despite the fact that the extinction of various fish species would be an ecological disaster worldwide, people seem to just go about their regular fish eating practices. This vlog is about the report and its connection to invidual choices that have global implications.

The Guardian Article I refer to.

The agency (ICES) that does the research.

    Yes! If only people would think more when they buy fish (or meat). I never eat meat (except if semi-forced), and hardly ever fish (but your mackarel dish 3 years ago was oh so delightful) but if I do, I only buy it at the market, just assuming those market people got their fish from honest and mindful sources. But actually, I wouldn’t have a clue if that is true! I should ask where they got it.

    Good statement, thanks!

      Thank you dear A-M. I like asking my fish market guy, he pretends not to hear my question.

    I never really think about where the fish comes from in fish sticks. I assumed it was fake fish.
