Human overpopulation has overfished the seas so certain popular species like Cod have become endangered and fishing prohibited. But there are more hungry people every year, not less, and they generate a growing mass of plastic garbage that becomes “landfill in the sea”, which kills a growing list of seabirds and cannot feed the fish. However, in polite EPA circles, it is considered bad taste to mention such matters (!)

I live in Portugal and they are now farming oysters. Apparently they can not keep up with demand from the French, so I guess the taste has not been sacrificed.

I don’t deny that farm-raised fish are becoming a necessity. There seems to be no other option at this point. Hopefully, with technological developments in the future, we’ll be able to have a win-win situation all around. Wasn’t aware of the “recycling” of the biowaste in the Washington/Oregon area. Interesting.

The amount of people demanding fish in their diets would quickly out strip the ability of wild fish populations to sustain themselves and they could become threatened or indangered from overfishing. Fish farms could be placed far enough away from the streams and spawning grounds of wild fish so the two groups would not mix. Fish farms also generate biowaste and enough is generated at farms in parts of Washington state and Oregon to create onsite electricihty to power some farms and help supply power to nearby towns. Farmed fish should be seen as an important resource and a means of preserving wildpopulations. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Their Seafood Watch pocket guide helps consumers purchase sustainably harvested fish that don’t impact our native populations. It can be downloaded at http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/cr_seafoodwatch/download.aspx

Wild salmon populations are one example, which came as a surprise to me. I now only purchase wild salmon.
