    Guy makes sense, even if his humor is a bit strained, but he never says what to eat instead. My recommendation: freshwater lake fish: bluegill, perch, and walleye, provided you catch 'em yourself. Sorry, tilapia; there's no place in my belly for you!

    I hoped maybe this was a discussion of the nutritional & health merits of different fish. Instead it was about everything else, including geopolitical issues.

    Look at two books by Peter D'Adamo:

    Live Right for Your Type
    The GenoType Diet.

    You'll find alternative fish to eat.

    I did. Without those two books, I do not think I would have ever thought to eat Red Snapper.

    The other issue as well now as a consumer when buying fish is I have to ask or look in in the label, if it's open water, fishery etc., because of our coastal waters becoming contaminated with high levels of mercury which is a concern.

    So I agree with him, but some species such as swordfish (which I like very much), marlin, mackerel king, etc. have been known to have high quantities of mercury so just be aware that although fish is very good source of protein just ensure you know which species is best for your health as well.

    It's not a fish shortage is a human overage.
