September 11, 2012 - The Guardian - AQUA FARMS CRAM FISH INTO SMALL SPACES (#CAFOs)

The chemicals used are highly toxic to many marine species, especially crustaceans. The treatments use organophosphates, which attack the nervous system of sea lice and teflubenzuron, which interferes with their ability to grow shells. Marine scientists have shown the chemical is extremely threatening to young lobsters, crabs and prawns, Staniford said....

This low score shows how far we need to go to ensure the oceans can continue to provide the benefits we depend upon.

Consider the oceans — the world’s largest resource. The oceans provide us with ample seafood, coastal protection, cultural identity, livelihoods and a host of other benefits, yet so far we have not prioritized their protection. With 7 billion people on the planet, almost half of whom live close to the coast, securing sustainable benefits from the ocean is not only a moral imperative, it’s a matter of long-term survival for people and societies....

FEEDING FIRST THAT WHICH, IN TURN, FEEDS US.  Men have got to stop raping and pillaging the precious resources of our planet to extinction, for it will ultimately lead to extinction of the human race.  We depend on a healthy balanced natural world for our own health and wellbeing.  The quarterly profit bottomline should drive extinction
