Off The Hook
Do you know what the term "sustainable fish stocks" means? It means we've failed as caretakers of this Earth. It's a nice way of saying "We've eaten everything in the pantry and now we're eyeing the seed corn. Maybe we better tie ourselves to this fence-post until someone who doesn't have a screwdriver jabbed into their forehead comes along and gives us better advice."
"Sustainable" is another way of saying "desperation". It does not mean, in this case, "Hey, we figured it out! Eat all the fish you want! The buffet is open!"
For example, you know that yummy tilapia that's popping up on menus and in your local grocery stores? They raise them on sewage. Tilapia are bottom feeders and they LOVE that stuff. That's sustainable fish stocks, folks. (Yes, there are fisheries that raise tilapia on grains and ground animal carcasses but that's also an environmental horror-show.)
But you're a smart consumer and you know better than to eat that stuff, except Consumer Report discovered that over 20% of seafood is mislabeled.
I know fish are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids but you also can get that in flax seeds, walnuts, and soybeans. In fact, flax seeds are slopping over with the stuff, delivering over four times as much omega-3 at almost half the calories of salmon. Put a tablespoon in your cereal and you're set for the day.
The irony here is that people turn to fish to heal the damage done to their bodies by eating meat. The answer is to eat less meat. Or none at all.
