Sushi, Tilapia, and Shrimp. OH MY!!!

The current issue of the Economist has a cover story on fish farming.

It is a rather eye opening survey of the state of fish production in general. Among the interesting morsels of info:

- One answer to that question I hear alot: What is Tilapia? The article also answers: What does a Tilapia do?

- the socio-economics of eating fish (the rich get fish-er)

- Q.:What do fish eat?(A: other fish)

I am also in the middle of read "Cod" by Mark Kurlansky which also provides a history of our bizarre realtionship with fish.

(all this Puts Beefsteak Charlies' 'SHRIMPSHRIMPSHRIMP' ads in a different context, not to mention the recent hound posting regarding sushi freshness, etc. )
