    Know this about seafood!

    This is by researchers in Canada, the Caribbean, and the Netherlands... among them from my alma maters .. (I know some ppl think university researchers are morons, well to them I say, "zoals de waard is, vertrouwt hij zijn gasten" in Dutch, google it or something)....

    Fishery and seafood has been an issue for decades and is getting more urgent, with collapses already having happened and more happening now, industries abandoned in all three regions....



    The more I learn about the food industry, the more I ponder going vegetarian *sigh* :/

    I can never do vegetarian. I also love fish. Plus, since when is eating seafood not vegetarian, unless you're one of those wacko animal lovers? I can only understand somebody's decision to go vegetarian if it's for health reasons.

    I watched some of the video, I got up to the part where they were talking about fish oil and how it wasn't necessary...I like seafood (especially shrimp, scallops and a lot of types of fish except tuna and catfish). The video really made me look at eating seafood differently....I think I've had my last shrimp scampi...........okay maybe one more, but that's the last one...

    I don't eat seafood...but I'm 90% carnivorous.

    I don't believe in eating plants because they are living organisms and I just feel like it's such a mistreatment to Mother Earth.

    More Chikin!

    Shawnathan saidI love fish and meat but I don't eat it much, so when I do eat it I enjoy it more.

    Although, I think being a vegetarian is admirable, I do not think it is necessary for a sustainable lifestyle. I do believe that most people need to cut way back on the amount of meat they eat - that's all meat and I will even say eggs and dairy too. This is both from a health and an environmental point of view. When you do that you can afford to seek out ethically and sustainable produced meat that will taste 1000 times better and be better for you.

    Enjoying the odd piece of meat will not hurt the Earth, especially considering that just by not reproducing, your ecological footprint will be so much smaller than a breeder's footprint will be..


    Meat yeah, but considering whats happening NOW, seafood is another matter...

    And btw, i LOOOOVE seafood, I adore it *sigh*.. its a traditional staple here in the islands.. and here several of the staples have completely disappeared from the menus already... simply because those organisms arent even around anymore in the quantities necessary to keep them on our plates .... sad sad sad!

    yourname2000 saidUnfortunately I can't commit an hour to watch the whole vid, but I hope my fish eating is sustainable. Coming from PEI Canada, like you (Amar?), I adore my seafood.

    Mostly I eat BC or Alaskan wild salmon and east coast Canadian sardines (although I actually had Atlantic Canada lobster last night). I usually eat 2-3 cans a day; my understanding from other news sources was that these smaller fish were more sustainable than other fisheries. Occassionally I'll eat farmed rainbow trout (a fresh water fish raised in ponds, so I don't think it's affected) but I prefer fish with omega 3s.

    I can't imagine life without fish. A life without sex, fine. Without fish, no way. icon_eek.gif


    Im from the Caribbean mate, but studied in the Netherlands, and this is about fishery sustainablity.... many of the stocks in Canada have already collapsed and others are now in the process of collapsing....

    At the rate its going, fish as food will be non-existent soon, and farm fish as a replacement at the way its going now, is a myth, because to farm the fish, they feed them wild-caught fish :/

    finally, most of the fish will be too poisonous to eat anyway.. when my lil sister went to Vancouverm, she reported the heavy metal count in the shrimp was so high, she could not eat them without getting dizzy... the Vancouverites were used to it, but she wasnt

    About 95% of the meat I eat is either fish or seafood; just love the stuff.

    I love fish! Especially halibut and pacific salmon! Oh, and shrimp too! Goes great with fettucine alfredo! The good stuff! I remember that Red Robin used to serve the clamstrips dish that I really liked. Sadly, it was discontinued... Anyways, fish! Oh nom nom nom! icon_lol.gif

    That being said, however, I will never cook it at home. I can only get it eating out. It stinks up the house too much to cook.

    I eat a lot of seafood and red meat once in a while. I could be a vegetarian if I wanted to. The seafood has worked out well for me because I'm 66 and in almost perfect health.

    I don't consider myself a vegetarian, but I think I have a good balance when it comes to what goes in my body. Food wise lol.

    I love seafood actually and I know the risks that come with it when it comes to the cleaning process and fishing for seafood as well as the mercury levels that come into play. But Whiting, Talapia and Salmon are just SOOOOOO good. icon_biggrin.gif
