The Downside to Tasting Good


It's only sad to see the Totoaba headed towards extinction because they tasted SO DAMNED GOOD.

Were I in a position to buy some of those fantastic Fillets before they're gone forever, I wouldn't hesitate.

Were Vaquita tasty ?

IF so, that IS sad.

No, they weren't tasty. They were collateral damage in the quest for everything else that was tasty.

Bill, there are still white sea bass (actually a croaker, I believe) out there. They taste virtually the same. I believe totuava were just a very large croaker.

"a whole bladder can sell for up to $250,000 once it reaches China"

what kind of foolishness cause people to think a fish organ is an aphrodisiac?

and why did the chinese focus on a fish on the other side of the world?

silly people!

The same that think Rhino Horn, Black Bear parts, have
some mechanical value. I've been going to San Felipe
for 25 yrs., may be I missed it, but I've never have seen a fisherman driving an Italian sports car, nor the streets
flowing with never ending wealth

"And the totoaba can be found only in a small area of ocean in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, near the town of San Felipe, 120 miles south of the US border."

this is as far as I made it.....

Taster's Choice


As often noted, every AH has an opinion, BUT I've tasted a LOT of fish (including White Sea Bass many times) over the last 60 + years and Totoaba was the BEST fish I've ever had.

Second being (maybe) the Rock Cod that we often (when I was a youngster) filled our boat up with off Catalina.

But, that's probably just fond memories of youth kicking in.

As a (meaningless) aside , Tilapia is tied with Catfish for the WORST.

and, yet, I've known many people who LOVE both.

It figures, though, that the current problem is a result of Oriental erection oddity. Those people seem to have a corner on Fetish.

Well.... if erection troubles (et) were removed from the "fetish"....you would be left with "fish"... :biggrin:

The Vaquita Air Wars


Reading the L.A. Times y Riverside Press-Enterprise ayer, I see where a Mexican fisherman in the Sea of Cortez was successful in shooting down one of the Sea Shepherd observation drones.

Given the likelihood that the drone would have gathered video prior to (and during) the assault, it seems likely that the government would be able to identify the shooter. IF they have the inclination.

It will be interesting to see whether any prosecution is pursued.

Whatever one thinks of the Totoaba as an endangered species and/or a food source, one should agree that reasonable actions should be taken to encourage its survival and netting it to extinction to satisfy sex-crazed Zipperheads is pretty disgusting.

??
why do you think millions of people actually entertain the nonsense of a virgin birth?
why do you think millions of people actually believe if you ate a dead animal ... you'd consequently top up your protien tank?

its learned 'behavior', combined with a severe lack of critical thinking skills / curiosity

Apples, Oranges, Erections and Virgins


I'm unaware that any mainstream religions have had a say on aiding Hard-Ons.

In any case, the belief in Aphrodisiacs is not analogous with Christian belief in the birth of J.C.

IF you accept that (whichever) God is Omnipotent, then ANY miraculous event is within his power.

As to eating dead animals ......................... If you're going to consume a protein source, what better way than something that tastes so damned good ?

Christianity has a lot going for it.

Wine and Bacon are right there at the top of the list.

Vegan Gone Wild


Well, at least he didn't EAT them.

On a serious note, though, nobody should mind Vegans.

They've been around for (nearly ?) forever and made NO difference in our carnivorous habits while providing us with something to joke about.

As I've found with some of my co-workers in years past, their passionate indignity can often be fun to watch and poke fun at.

Well, it's time to light the BBQ and burn some Beef.
