    Frick your cadmium and mercury infested mutant fish pulled up from >200m with their eyes exploded and giga tumors from being farmed off of Greece. I buy my freshwater fish locally or catch it myself.

    You know what I want to change in the fishing industry? The practice of fish killing. Small fishermen can kill their fish instantaneously as a humane practice, as they try to do with animals like cows. Large ones leave the fish to slowly and painfully suffocate.

    I wish more people were talking about this. This makes the difference between ethical and unethical for me.

      The reason why they don't do it is to avoid it spoiling. The other solution is for them to flash freeze it before shipping it.

    Doing my dissertation on this right now. It's an absolute fricked industry. Salmon farming is the big one. The problem is literally every sea pen of salmon is infested with salmon lice that essentially eat the fish alive until it's body gives up. Because the salmon are so packed together it's like a breeding factory for lice which can then drift out of the pens and infect wild salmon.
    Farmed salmon get treatment for the lice ( which is also fricked. Thermolicers are hot water treatments that essentially micro cook the salmon while alive to kill the lice), but wild salmon obvs get nothing and 1-2 lice will kill a juvenile salmon easy. Wild salmon populations are essentially non recoverable because salmon farming won't end bc it's too tasty.
    Profits are plummeting for some companies rn because of literally microjellyfish floating in and killing half the stock, so salmon prices are probably gonna spike soon.
    Also, wild fact. Salmon farms in Scotland eat more food mass per day than the human population of the entire UK. And less fun, salmon farms were started to reduced wild fishing, but 2/3 of salmon food is wild caught fish. So what's the fricking point.

      damn that's a crazy statistic

      do you have a map of global fishing density, like total mass of fish taken from the ocean across the globe? that's what I tried to find for that second pic ->

      I watched some nature documentary on netflix recently which mentioned the topic and it made me interested

      is it possible for fish populations to recover while we still maintain high levels of wild fishing?

      where are most wild fish caught, what's happening to the ocean in those areas?

      . seems to be mostly available for specific species.

      I guess it's hard to do because around 20% of fishing is illegal. (unreported / unregulated)

      are there any areas with high levels of fishing which are also capable of sustaining the fish population in that area? can wild caught fishing ever truly be sustainable?

      Crazy I just had salmon last night (canned wild Alaskan) and was thinking about getting getting a salmon steak before too long. May have to pick up half a trout instead

      Salmon food would be of species that recover populations easily, whereas salmon themselves are higher trophic level so straight farming wild salmon would be more destructive than farming salmon food, no?

          Livestock including you

          We need to cull overpopulated herbivores. This excess and the cause it gives for international shipping and destructive agriculture needs to end. Cows eat grass, humans eat cows, it is the way of the world.

      Depends on the species, Some species have a fast lifecycle and are highly prolific but others take a long time to reproduce. I think the future lies in protecting aquatic habitats and breeding grounds so the prolific species can continue being abundant for extraction combined with aquaculture so we can make not so prolific species more prolific by reducing mortality and other factors. There is also selective breeding and GMOs and we might produce for example tuna that grows faster and taste better.
