Did you know?: Fish have a purpose

Jun
08

A few years ago, I semi-seriously inquired about the evolutionary purpose of fish. I still don’t have the answer, but I suspect that will change soon. Today is World Ocean Day and the new documentary, The End of the Line, debuts, answering that question and addressing the very quiet issues concerning the deteriorating state of our fisheries.

It turns out that 90% of the sea animals caught in the fishing industry are “bycatch: dumped dead or dying into the sea, or turned into fertilizer, pet food and fish food.”

As a semi-vegan/pescetarian, I think I might need to add a little diversity in my fish choices, skip it altogether, or eat Whole Foods quality farm raised. The sacrifices we all have to make so as many people as possible can enjoy this planet for as long as possible…they’re really not that big.
