25 January, 2019 - M/V Sofea DECK LOG - FISH FRAUD AND FISHATARIANISM
cheapskates (no ocean pun intended), working fish harbors and sea ports most of our
adult lives meant "by-catch" aplenty always coming in on the boats daily, during my
afternoon/evening dock rounds everything from Spiny lobster to eel, fish of
undeterminant breeds to Abalone, or, a generous hank of a Captain's "take-home"
family fish was always shared.
familiar, we have caught some pretty prestigious people lying about what they are
selling. wrong shape, wrong color, wrong size, and wrong taste... did I mention wrong
price ? and sometimes even an endangered species to boot.
Cod, Tuna, Sword fish and Salmon, I was hooked (pun intended), eating fish and
seafood full time means it is no longer a delicacy to us, it is a staple, but, most all of
the product we eat is not even US caught ! here are some thoughts....
