The fish are dying. According to researchers from the Canadian University of British Columbia 2 thirds of all predatory fish has now disappeared from the world’s seas – in the last century! When are consumers going to understand that the time (illusion) when the threat of the collapse of the marine ecosystem could be combating by changing what fish to eat depending on which species of fish was about to die at that moment is over. We can no longer blame politicians for being spineless in allowing these predatory corporate fishers with no regard to the lives of other species or the future of our planet to do as they wish. Actually, we never could. Politicians have always been, are and will be whores – they will go with the person (interest group) that gives them a wad of cash. Oh, do notice that I have nothing against actual whore, I want to be straight about that.
As a consumer you have two option. Stop bitching about the lack of spine of politicians about this and stop saying that you care about the future of the seas, since you carefully pick what fish to eat, OR stop eating fish (and fish oil). Simple as that. Since fish are totally laden with mercury nowadays you don’t even have a health reason to do it either. You can get far more Omega-3’s from ground up flax seeds.
