I agree. I am one to notice the fall of classic culinary arts, and beyond. Western society has gone on a separate path. How many cooks and chefs can actually make and work with a egg white raft to clarify a stock?

Not many, not lets go deeper, how many chefs and cooks can smoke fish, can fish, or dry fish in a traditional way? And if you go even deeper, how many normal people can do that?

If people wanted to smoke, can, and dry fish they would....but it's fish....so they don't.
I notice no one's forgotten how to broil a steak or cook up a yummy cheeseburger.

Good thing they do not have to work for an employer for three hundred years. I would hate to have to work till I was three hundred to retire. Those sharks just have to hunt and fish, that isn't really working, I consider that a hobby.

I wonder what has kept them from becoming the only creatures in the ocean by now. Perhaps what keeps their numbers in check is being prone to illnesses or perhaps a propensity for attacking and killing each other?

How the hell do they know that? Did they count the birthday candles? Check the birth certificate?

But if fish were swimming all around you through the air all the time and all you had to do was reach out and grab one...would that really be much of a sport?

No, they used science.

LOL! But, but...we would be aging much slower. They don't reach sexual maturity until 150.

I consider eating fish one of my favorite sports. I go to the all you can eat whitefish fish fry at a local restaurant and usually get three or four refills, I eat almost two pounds of fish some times. Usually I get full off three sides of whitefish though, unless I feel super competative.

They slice it in half and counted the rings.

I can and do every year after I catch them myself.

Everyone should be able to.

It should be a required class in High school...

Canning and preserving (smoking, potting, curing) meats, vegetables, berries, fruits, etc.

And of course be able to make your own wine/cider/beer.

I usually try to date them by asking them what their favorite band is.

Or ask, you on Facebook, or IG?

Hakarl

It is edible ... if prepared correctly. And there is less likelihood that Hakarl will kill you than fugu will.

Interesting they don't reach sexual maturity until 150.

Thats less than half the average age. That probably keeps the viable ones creating offspring, making for a robust species

I know we just increased our lifespans dramatically in the last few generations, but I wonder how humanity would be if they had kids later. Interesting thought. There would be pros and cons for sure.
