Mark Bittman on Seafood

Yet another update on the state of our oceans.

He says that the only fish that is farmed in any kind of sustainable way is tilapia, but that it is so tasteless you might as well eat tofu. The most upsetting thing I thought was his observation on small fish like anchovies, sardines and herring, all of which I thought were very responsible to eat. Oh, but not so fast! It turns out they are the fish that are used to feed other fish and some farm animals and are also being depleted.

The conclusion is that our Oceans are a mess, but we can fix the problem if we were to manage our resources better. If not by 2048 it's game over.

Here it is well worth the read.
