January 24, 2013 NEW YORK TIMES:

Sometime this year, we will quietly pass a milestone in human history: the majority of the fish we eat will be farm-raised rather than wild-caught.

In the last 20 years, the production of fish through aquaculture has grown exponentially, while marine fish catches have leveled off. Unless it’s an extraordinary year for marine fishing, in 2013 the lines will cross, and the majority of the fish we eat will come from aquaculture rather than oceans.... http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/24/a-milestone-looms-for-farm-raised-fish/

pdjmoo's curator insight, January 26, 2013 6:51 AM

Having almost emptied our oceans the industrial complex that has already taken over our global food supply now has a final coup with our seafood.

Unfortunately, just as with our meat and chicken this is not about feeding the world but about quarterly bottom-line profits.

These poor fish will have no room to swim or move, with natural healthy seawater flowing through their gills, swimming long distances, feeding from natural sources -- which gives them their healthy sustenance.

Instead they will be confined (CAFOs = Confined Animal Feeding Lots), bred to grow even bigger, faster; fed corn, soy and other unnatural food; and fed antibiotics and pesticides to avoid lice and sickness breakouts due to being bred in unnatural, tightly squeezed quarters.   Do you want this for either the fish or yourself?  Corporate Profits Over Health for both our ecosystems and humans.
