This was on BBC but the site changes quickly. This is what it said.

Environmental campaigners film '100,000 dead fish' spilled into the Atlantic Ocean

Environmental campaigners film '100,000 dead fish' spilled into the Atlantic Ocean
Close
Environmental campaign group Sea Shepherd filmed this footage of what they estimate to be "100,000 dead fish."

They've accused the Dutch-owned trawler FV Margiris of deliberately discharging the fish as "bycatch."

The fishing association PFA, speaking for the vessel, say the "rare occurrence" was due to a "rupture" in the fishing net, which it has reported to the authorities.


No one knows how many fish were lost, but I assume they went by past figures. A very small can of Japanese tuna here now cost about $3 bucks. Remember when tuna came in large cans enough to make tuna fish sandwiches for 7 people for less then 79 cents, I sure do.

then you remember the canning in California

I don't know if it was 6 oz but my mother feed us 7 with a can of tuna with 3 eggs mixed into and the Wonder bread for 5 loaves for 1 buck, surely you remember them days if you are in the 60's.

Sure do, my Mom fed four herself, my two brothers and me. My Dad wouldn't touch it, said tuna was just as bad as sorrydines that was what he called sardines. Said the only good kinda fish were fresh water and fried.

My Mom also use sweet relish in her tuna salad.

Let me just jump in here. I made tuna salad today! You can play with the amounts of the ingredients. It's not an exact science...

3 small cans tuna
3 boiled eggs (chopped)
1/2 cup of onion (chopped fine)
2 tablespoons sweet relish
Hellman's Mayonnaise (enough to make it hold together, and as creamy as you like)
Teaspoon of smokey paprika (optional, but yum!)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Stir it all together and enjoy with crackers, or as a sandwich, or on a stalk of celery.

Boiled eggs. Finely chopped onions. Try finely diced apples, too. and if you feel real bold, some chopped walnuts.

Mayonaise. Finely chopped dill slices or sweet relish if you prefer. Maybe a dash of mustard if you like a little bite.

ETA: If you are feeling really wild, sprinkle on a dash of curry powder.

Try that dash of curry powder. If you like curry that is.

And finely chopped apples and walnuts really are awesome for something different.

We had chickens awhile back and had eggs coming out of our ears. I needed to find ways to eat them and started making curried egg salad. That was a W.I.N.N.E.R.

We used to buy the larger cans when I was a kid, we had five people in the family and a little can was too small. Maybe you haven't seen them, but they were on the shelves, and in fact, they still have the larger cans in some stores here but not in every store. I think they were around twelve ounces or so.


We stock tuna in little cans in our pantry because there are only two of us. I am 66. I do know some people who still buy the biger cans to make tuna macaroni salad and if they have many kids. There are also huge cans of Tuna at GFS, I suppose restaurants buy those for making salads for buffets or something, they are around four pounders I think.

I use the Japanese mayo, good stuff, but I understand its not good for us. I also like to put the French mustard on the toast.

chopped golden/muscat rasins too. i grew up on tuna in olive oil. i would be jealous of the kids in school at lunch when someone had the lily white albacore in water on crustless wonder bread, lol. my grandmother just didn't get it. lol.her tuna sands raised hell on my paper lunch bag.

i wanted bologna and cheese but got mortadella and provolone. back in the 20's and 30's her and grand dad had an italian deli. so she knew her stuff. just not american stuff.

the nice tuna in oil here is from spain. in glass jars so you can see the filets pricey tho. great for an antipasti platter.

wasn't there a thread about subway getting sued coz their tuna wasn;t tuna? it had other dna like beef in it and other fish?

For Weightlifters and gym bros canned tuna is always added for lunch or a snack. High in protein. However I always got sick every now and then from canned tuna, not sure if it’s an allergic reaction or what. I found out one day looking at canned Chicken, the protein content was about the same, never got sick again off canned chicken. I take fish oil pills the chicken doesn’t give like tuna.

One of my old jobs the owners son was into bodybuilding. He started eating nothing but tuna and spaghetti noddles for a competition.

To much tuna must make you a gaseous asseous cause he started farting all the time and stunk up the whole damn shop and customers would complain about it. Boss run him off until after he was done with the competition

Here's a link to one of the many sites with this story:
Shock in France after giant trawler sheds 100,000 dead fish off coast

Apparently, the fish were mostly "blue whiting, a sub-species of cod".

PS: here in Portugal, a 120gr can of tuna in olive oil costs around 1.5 Euros (1.72 dollars).

Well apart from the Tuna recipes as far as I know trawler nets do not kill their catch. If any of you ever watched trawlers landing their catch you would see when dropped on the deck the catch is very much alive. I would suggest that they decked their catch, started to process and found they were way over the weight allowed so dumped the excess over the side.
