Well, if “tuna” is bad for kitties heart condition, then less “tuna” in her “tuna” could be a good thing. Then it again it could be the reason she will not eat some brands.
I have actually caught Tyson Foods funding this kind of activism; yes, they are into industrial aquaculture, big time.
I am not as down on aquaculture as you, but there has to be a way of validating responsible behavior and product quality. I am more into private validation services to provide that function than government inspection.
Mislabled Tuna? No thanks, I’d rather stick with
my favorite, Pacific Slimehead other wise known
as Orange Roughy. hahahah.
Don’t bother. If you’re a CCW you stand a good chance of getting gunned down by excitable cops.
“Did you know theres no such fish as Chillean Seabass?”
There is also no such fish as a “Coney Island Whitefish”.
Of course, some days I am not sure it is real food.
Are you telling me there is something fishy in the fish market?
Copper River Reds... Oh man, the best!
What is it about the eyes of these lib communists? Especially NY ones? Cuomo, Bloomberg, odongo, etc. They all have those same life-less eyes that all the recent mass murderers have.
Weird...maybe they’re all on the same satanic ritual drugs? Who knows, but it’s definitely creepy....and to think they are now our overseers and rulers is even more creepy.
Farmed fish has one unspoken objective: the elimination of commercially caught fish in the US - a goal they are near achieving after 45 years of using every lie in the book, every Federally supplied lawyer they could muster, after every trick and piece of propaganda they could muster from big PR firms.
There is no economically way to farm fish that produces the product that Nature does without human intervention. ‘Validation’ by any means is another way for money to change hands ... the bigger the ‘service’, the more money changes hands, and the more political the result achieved.
Don’t doubt me - I’ve been in it since the beginning, and I’ve paid the price in money, and with the lives of friends and loved ones. A price you pay on each time you shovel one of their ‘certified’ products into your mouth.
If one needs a ‘validation’ service to certify some type of food Nature otherwise produces, then that food is a product of money and politics.
Tyson is a late-comer to the game. The Pew Foundation used to be a Danson funder and likely still is. Then there is the whole huge list of wealthy leftist environmental funding sources which are helping you live better through the magic of food chemistry. It is hard to fight ‘non-profit charitable’ organizations and other NGOs with hundreds of millions of dollars to dole out annually and uses Federal Government departments and lawyers to enforce their desires.
One of the other objectives behind fish farming is to not only eliminate commercial fishing, but also to hasten the movement of people into controlled spaces - otherwise known as inner cities - and out of rural uncontrolled spaces (by whatever means necessary).
One day in the not-so-distant future, people will believe, as did old Key Westers, that food comes in packages and cans, made in some distant factory which magically appears on store shelves.
Know who killed your meat and fish, who raised your vegetables and grains.
Thank you for taking the time to educate us about the fishing business. FReepers are so smart and so helpful.
So is the surimi healthy in your opinion? Do they add a lot of stuff to it?
I grew up on the Northern Oregon coast and my Mother worked in seafood processing plants. The best seafood caught never makes it past the mothers that work in processing plants. When a boat comes in with a catch on ice only hours old, it’s instantly bought up by the women. My family was two or three paychecks away from being homeless, but we ate better than the brown Caligula residing in the white hut.
I wouldn’t eat factory canned tuna if you paid me. The only canned tuna I will eat now that Mom has passed is from a little family cannery from the town I’m from. Ridiculously expensive, but alder smoked FRESH albacore tuna is incredible.
Thought you’d have fun with this fishy subject. LOL
“uncontrollable oily anal leakage”
I will have the load of guillotines at
point C by Tuesday.
“So is the surimi healthy in your opinion? Do they add a lot of stuff to it?”
I personally avoid it. It ususally stinks. Nowadays Surimi could be made from any otherwise non-salable fish or meat scrap incuding mixing in a little roadkill for that tangy taste ...
If you want crab, buy one that is still alive, boil 15 minutes at most or until shell turns redish in very salty water - or sea water if you are near the ocean. Practice makes perfect.
If you can smell it, don’t buy the rotting c—p. Some of it may be irradiated as well. You can tell by taking a sample and letting it sit in a pail in warm weather - it will not rot.
See here for some Wiki poster’s definition of Surimi
You are welcome for the very brief introduction to the fishing business as far as it concerns consumers.
If you would share the name of that small cannery perhaps we can get them some business.
This fella took the gold.
