Thanks for both your large posts, most informative and very useful to know.
I happen to know a guy personally who was a pioneer in aquaculture. He's no liar.
There is no economically way to farm fish that produces the product that Nature does without human intervention.
True, but the same could be said of agriculture v. gathering wild vegetation. The product isn't the same, but that doesn't mean that it is necessarily a bad product.
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.
Back that up. I think Underwriters' Laboratories has done a good job. I think JD Power does a good job. I think the ASTM does a good job, or the ASME, or the IEEE, or VeriSign, Good Housekeeping, or the BBB...
Dont doubt me - Ive been in it since the beginning, and Ive 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.
Sorry, that looks like hype to me.
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).
The book covered that too. I was on the first Agenda21 Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management Roundtable in 1994, not to abet it but to turn it toward reason. The whole process was a corrupt fraud.
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.
The diesel engine in a fishing boat was made in a factory. So were the hydraulics and electronics. So you know that fishermen are a direct beneficiary of industry. To argue otherwise would by hypocritical. Do you know the guy who mined the iron? Do you know whether they returned that mine to productive land?
Know who killed your meat and fish, who raised your vegetables and grains.
Do you drink coffee? Do you know the guy who raised the beans? Do you eat bananas? Do you drink orange juice? How about the guy who raised the hops in your beer? As I said, "hypocritical."
You don't know whom you are "instructing." You don't know what I do. You don't know what I know or what I've done to support fishermen and how they have been screwed by the likes of Zeke Grader and Glen Spain. Instead, you fall into the leftist Hegelian trap of taking "sides." You know damned well the world can't be fed with current technology without industrial agriculture. We can't all eat "wild fish" without doing what was done to the Grand Banks. Yet there is a place for your industry, if only to manage and monitor the resources that keep it viable while producing a viable high end product. It's a service. Broaden your vision for goodness sake.
Who manages the watersheds that produce anadromous fish? Do you help those foresters, or do you buy that BS crap about "canopy regulations"? HMMM??? Do you count smolts? They do.
Zeke Grader and Glen Spain had me on their personal hit list back in the 90s.
The rest I’m not going to argue.
Haha, that’s hilarious. :) I bet he’s from Florida, America’s Australia.
That makes more sense. At least that seems viable. Thanks.
And with you Kathy Fosmark, whom I happen to know personally.
The commercial fishing industry started to go down the tubes the moment they allowed government to take over the hatcheries.
The rest Im not going to argue.
If you don’t have a Costco, go with Member’s Mark white albacore tuna at Sam’s Club. It has “white tuna, water, salt, phosphate.” No soy.
Patagonian Tooth Fish. Sound appetizing?
On the bright side, PETA will assure us it's just another tasty-sounding "sea kitten."
Now you've left me wondering. Did you reply to the wrong person or just take a gratuitous slap at L.E.?
All I said in the remark you replied to was:
Thanks for the tip, now if I can just find a Costco.
“Skipanon Brand” in Warrenton, OR and “Josephson’s Smokehouse” in Astoria, OR are brands I buy. Shipping is outrageous though and probably not worth it. I buy when they “Skipanon” attend farmer’s markets in the Willamette Valley or when I visit the coast.
I didn’t mean it personally.
I’ve just got this thing about Costco after one of their employees caused a stink over a guy who happened to be carrying and the poor guy ended up being killed in a hail of bullets from overreacting cops.
Sorry...it was off topic...........
Give it a rest ...
Thanks, we do have a Sam’s Club and I like tuna.
