DailyDirt: Chickens Of The Sea..?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Americans eat about 4.5 billion pounds of seafood annually -- placing third behind China and Japan. The US ranks 15th in farmed seafood production, and America exports about a billion pounds of caught fish every year. The oceans might seem like an endless supply of fish, but we're actually starting to over-fish several species. Here are a few suggestions for what seafood to order and some technological alternatives to traditional fishing. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    Personally, I've never liked salmon and shrimp is kind of bland. I only occasionally eat tuna.

    Free Range?

    Are fish farms considered to be free range? Also, is there a way to get caviar without killing the fish yet? Or is the rest of the fish eaten and the caviar is just a bonus?

    "Are fish farms considered to be free range?"

    I don't know, but considering how the term "free range" is used for farm animals, it would be consistent if they were.
