Hehehe well our chippy shops still sell hallibut and thats what i favour, though a good piece of rock cod or snapper is just as tasty.
The mixed bag of fish that the modern purse seins or net ships get,should and could be saved.
Though there is no market for it, there may be somewhere else....ie dogfish sells well in mexico, and other countries have their faves too.....
The world is too small to throw out good food.
The harvest from the sea is a bounty that we will be sorely missing in the near future.
It is a travesty to waste.
There are some rogue states which should be banned from the high seas though......
Without mentioning names, japan,portugal.and spain come to mind.Though SE Asia is no better, and their keepers standards are pretty lax.....
It is pretty much a done deal to have lots of dead fish that one cannot keep for economic reasons.This is because of the methods used in fishing.
IE drift netts with fine mesh which catch everything in their path....they trail for thousands of feet behind these ocean factory ships.
These factory ships have the perfect opportunity to over catch, and overfish.They can what they catch at sea and bring back finished product.frozen or
canned.it is concievable that a ban on drift nets would help hugely.
