Fish Farm?

This is nuts: It takes around 6 tonnes of wild fish to reduce to 1 tonne of fishmeal, and then anything from 1.5 to 3 tonnes of meal to produce 1 tonne of farmed salmon. Comprende? we catch and kill 6 tonnes of wild fish to turn it in to 1 tonne of fishmeal…to then feed to other fish…to then kill and eat.

“Farmed fish are fed oils and meal made from other fish: close to a third of the catch from the world’s fisheries is used for non-food products, with the majority being converted into fishmeal and fish oil.” (read more)

Now, I like a salmon steak as much as anyone, but if this is the main way we have of producing ‘farmed’ fish, then something is sadly wrong don’t you think?

The BBC wants to hear from you?

by on Mar.11, 2010, under Music Stuff


The BBC Trust has now launched an official consultation on its proposals for massive cuts to its services. It’s asking us to email to say what we think of their plans to cut their website in half and scrap BBC 6 Music and Asian Network.

We need to make sure the BBC gets an overwhelming number of responses against these plans. The more of us who send an email against the cuts, the more chance we have of changing their mind.

It only takes 1 minute to email the BBC Trust and speak out against the cuts using this online tool – please click here to add to the pressure:
