    @kaschtnsamtdiekarbln That’s why I don’t eat Tuna or Pork. It’s estimated by 2050, the supply of tuna in the ocean will be all depleted.

    @TheJDub1228 …
    @TheJDub1228 trawler fishing makes frozen seafood, fish sticks and cheap farm food (pigs etc) possible. if you oppose it, you should also stop consuming all that is directly or indirectly reliant on it.

    Maybe not all spearfishermen are the same but I’ve seen in real life spearfishermen killing massive gopher which are uneatable when a certain size just to get a photo and a ego boast to say they caught a fish “so many” kg.

    @fadedyouthtube In spearfishing, we respect the animals. We choose the one we want, then put a knife in their brain to kill them humanely and quickly so they don’t suffer.

    I don’t agree with mass commercial fishing. It’s wasteful. It’s not being good stewards of what we have been given.

    Believe me, I know about factory farming and I don’t agree with it. It makes animals sick and then we ingest their negative hormones. Organic is the best because animals are respected.

  11. fadedyouthtube says:

    @ …
    @StrengthFromAbove83 That’s the problem — “As long as animals are respected when they’re harvested.” The thing is: they’re not. We live in an overpopulated world where mass commercial factory farming is necessary. Animals cannot be given dignity when people expect to eat animals for lunch and dinner. Yes, primitive man ate animals too…but not at the rate that we eat them. And not nearly the proportions that we do. I suggest you read more about factory farming before you make any judgments.

  12. StrengthFromAbove83 says:

    @fadedyouthtube …
    @fadedyouthtube Nice. Too bad primitive man ate animals too. And vegetarians lack essential vitamins, minerals, and fats from animals. As long as animals are respected when they’re harvested, there is nothing wrong with it.

    @fadedyouthtube The only idiots are the ones eating sub-par diets that don’t include animal meat because of irrational inferiority complexes.

    @hawaii50th This is how I remember tuna being caught in the 60’s – before, as you say, greed set in and they started net fishing. It also avoids all bycatch.

    This is the way it use to be done in the sixties in most places until greed set in, and more people demanded tuna as well as all other sea food.
