I didn’t actually know that Bluefin tuna was being farmed in Japan – or anywhere for that matter. Provocative video from the folks at Perennial Plate. Fish farming is very problematic on all sort of levels, one of which is pointed out in the video which is the amount of other fish needed to feed the fish being farmed…but weighed against the potential extinction of a species….but then the babies used for the farm are caught in the wild. Doesn’t seem to me like Bluefin are ever gonna catch a break…be warned even though it’s a “fish” being slaughtered I found this to be unusually upsetting….my mind is a whirl with thoughts about this….so I’m going to breath and gather said thoughts while you watch and let me know what you think….
