NOWHERE TO SWIM: Milestone Looms for Corporate Factory Farmed (GMO) Raised Fish - More, Bigger, Faster (Profits That is)

NOWHERE TO SWIM:  Milestone Looms for Corporate Factory Farmed (GMO) Raised Fish - More, Bigger, Faster (Profits That is) | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

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/

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.

Commodifying and Privatising Nature: RIO+20 and the greenwashing of the global economy

Commodifying and Privatising Nature: RIO+20 and the greenwashing of the global economy | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

The focus on technologies is problematic because of the types of controversial new technologies that are promoted, including biomass incineration, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, etc. Nuclear and GMOs are not explicitly endorsed, but would fit with the approach.

The market-based approach has been heavily criticised by NGOs as it would mean assigning private property rights to nature, commodifying and privatising nature. Leaving nature to the market would undermine the opportunities of communities and states to protect the commons. Also the bitter lessons from the carbon trading debacle seem to be entirely ignored when UNEP proposes tradeable biodiversity credits. The UNEP reports exposes a misguided belief in markets, which is astonishing after the financial crisis. It is as if that example of the chronic failure of deregulation and market-based approaches had never happened.
