Tuna Sandwich Anyone?

This in from Greenpeace on the destruction and death that goes into every tin of  “Chicken of the sea”.
I see videos like this and wonder if we shouldn’t stop eating fish all together that farming actual chickens is  more sustainable.  Of course vegetarians who eat fish think somehow the death of these majestic creatures is more acceptable than the death of, say, a chicken, yet when confronted with this evidence it just doesn’t seem to add up to me.  A chicken slaughtered on a farm doesn’t have any residual impact like the devastating by catch of other species and baby fish who are killed in the process then thrown back in the sea to rot or feed Seagulls.

Funny how this video just makes me want to eat chicken of the land and give chicken of the sea a pass.

Go Here and sign the petition.

The helicopter pilot who took this footage is shown in the shadows doing the narrative with one of those distorted voices so that no one can identify him – is it just me or does he sound Australian?  I thought those voice distortion things were suppose to make it impossible for you to decipher those sorts of things?

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
