From Whaling to the active decimation of blue fin tuna stocks, as a former Fish Monger, I see these actions as criminal. From fishing in Alaska to throwing salmon at The Pike Place Market in Seattle, from buying seafood for Safeway to managing stores for Johnny’s Seafood in Washington, the true professionals I’ve known have always mixed the desire for profit with conservation of the resource, many unthinkingly exploit. A failing of fish stocks, causes the failing of these industries, and a massive loss of jobs. Many understand this basic truth. While many don’t, and manically destroy the life in our lakes seas and oceans. I’ll say it again, this is a crime against all citizens of the world.
I too like Sashimi grade Ahi, but there is a limit. You don’t decimate a species to increase its price. Increased cost, and therefore profit, through extinction is not a good business model.
