I’ve actually been meaning to write something about this for more than a year, ever since (warning: link has some very sad before-and-after pictures of a shark killed for food) a post I saw via The Atlantic‘s now-defunct food blog inspired me to draft a response saying “It’s a no-brainer, really:
- endangered species
- the higher up the food chain, the higher its levels of pollutants
2a. and the more its being an endangered species means you’re doing ecological damage by eating them
- that fish did not look nearly as good cooked as it did alive (even dying, in pictures which I found weirdly sadistic in an ‘I so did not need to see that’ kind of way.”
So anyways, thanks for reminding me of that, Keef!
