Delicious Way to Sustainable Eating: Give Overlooked Fish New Names and Looks

Fish“Eating with a difference… ” It is a positive thought, not only for your body, but for the planet as well. Puzzled? Read on.

Many want to find out more about what they can do to help the planet recover from massive harvesting and exploitation. There are many ways to do that. Start with the way you eat. Because every human has to eat 2-3 full meals a day (or more), this can mean having a “planetful” of people (nearing the 8 billion-mark) contributing to saving the marine resources. This also means ensuring there will be more mouths to feed for more years.

How difficult is foregoing delicious seafood (snapper, grouper and such) sound? With creativity, you can give “trash fish” (low economic value catch) new names … try “delicious fish” for a change. To merit the name, dress them up in your kitchen! If cooking is something you love to do, and eating is anticipated with much gusto, your “noble” effort will not only be rewarded with something more than a palatable dish to grace your dining plate, but a happy palate and a pocket too! In return, you’ll be giving sustainable fishermen a much needed boost to their business, and you may not ask the question “Is eating seafood right?” again. [Read more…]

When Cultured Fish Tastes as Good as the Wild

The planet can only support so much number of mouths; this is the basic concept of “carrying capacity.” As the global population grows, food gets scarcer, especially the ones derived from natural sources. Early in human history, humans learned this lesson and so they learned how to “culture” food products in land and in the waters.

Fish is an important part of the human diet. Simply relying on fishing from the seas and inland waters is not enough.  A check on the current world population would show it has reached over 7 billion and it’s still growing. This is the basic premise that is fuelling the motivation to increase fish production through aquaculture.

Do not forget that eating fish is healthy. If you care for your health, read what Necia Wilden, a Food Editor in Melbourne, has to say about “Nine reasons to eat more fish” that is posted in The Australian – Executive Living. [Read more…]
