    Tuna. We're eating the fucking out of them.

    They're going to be gone.

    Just like oil.

    But we're so addicted we can't stop. It's Sisyphian.

    Sounds like Zoidberg and the over-consumption of sardines.

    Unlike oil, of which we're running out because it's a limited resource and takes many years to renew itself, we'd be running out of tuna because it's a living species, requires active reproduction to continue existing, and is being consumed at a greater rate than it's reproducing.

    I'm curious what the "difficulty in ensuring supplies" for farmed bluefish tuna actually means; what supplies and why were they difficult to ensure?
