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/

 

And the Corporate Industrialized Factory Farming Cartel is Already Preparing for a Public Outcry:

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.

A WALL STREET MOM TURNS FOOD EVANGELIST: TED VIDEO 2011

Robyn shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path as a "Real Food" evangelist. Grounded in a successful Wall Street career that was more interested in food as good business than good-for-you, this mother of four was shaken awake by the dangerous allergic reaction of one of her children to a "typical" breakfast. Her mission to unearth the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach, and impelled her to share her findings with others. Informative and inspiring Robyn O'Brien @unhealthytruth

A GAME CHANGER? Crowdsourced Website Documents World's Entire Food System

A GAME CHANGER? Crowdsourced Website Documents World's Entire Food System | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

A new, crowd-sourced website plans to document every angle of the food system. Given its stated aim of documenting "the entire food system", and given that ANYONE can upload photos and tell the story of their food, it seems like there is an opportunity for activists to tell the stories of the industrial food system through this platform too.
