So long and thanks for all the fish

Those cows had it coming.

Med. and Atlantic Tuna Quotas Cut

Apparently Medditerranean stocks are being overfished 3 times above sustainable levels, so the quota is being cut by 20%. Conservationists funnily enough aren’t happy. Japan has already decided to cut it’s own catch quotas by 50%.

Oh that ban on bottom trawling? Didn’t happen. I really hope triggercut is right and all the fish are just hiding from fishing boats, but given that we know more about the inside of the sun than what’s in the seas, I’m not hopeful.

Of course, the fact that about 110% of the world’s population growth is taking place in exactly the same places, thus increasing caloric demand at a rate greater than it is declining (if it is declining at all) in the US/Europe, is no cause for alarm…
