I was thinking the same, but then looked it up. I guess people actually eat them. I seen some people on pier keeping and drying them for decorations in the past.
Yeah I see hanging them on a wall framed up. Wonder what it tastes like.

Moooo!
Removed my comment because my attempt at humor was found offensive by other members. This is a fishing website and I came here to learn new techniques, read and post reports, buy and sell gear, not to piss people off. Also unfair to highjack the thread.

Hopefully they get a harsh punishment to make an example. I have been seeing too many people at the tide pools with buckets gathering anything they can find.

tf do they eat starfish
Well what do we expect.....they even devour Bat Soup! 😤

Most likely they are harvesting it for money instead for personal consumption....sad....these folks should get jail time in order to teach them lesson how to use America’s marine resources in a responsible way.😉

OMG, the blatant racism on this site is unbelievable. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

White guy posts fish picture in obvious MLPA - "hey buddy, you better check a map"

Asian person poaches (which is a crime, not denying it, and they should be punished fully) - "freaking Asians again"

Here's a bunch more Asians committing poaching recently:

We do not need our country to turn into what is happening in South China Sea. Why the hell do you think they need to go all the way to Galapagos Islands to fish or any other country to poach. They over fish the hell out of there ocean big or small, protected or not. It is not so hard to read the rule book on fishing is it?

Starfish is use in soup which has no benefit ()

There is an Asian saying if any back can face the sun or moon. It is edible.

probably. My mom grew up in fujian during the Mao regime. They ate everything from the sea. Most of the poaching is still connected to the Mao era.

I know my Mom grew up in that era and she tells us story how bad the communist party is. Just to survive they needed to eat what they can get there hands on.

maybe it's lost in translation, but what exactly dose it mean... if any back can face the sun or moon. It is edible.

Now who here is currently eating starfish? I don't have a problem with it, every group eats crazy shit. It's all a matter of prospective.

Now pass the chili, cuz I like mine spicy!

Hard to translate from Chinese to English. Basically means anything with limps that is alive will be eaten. Anything the sun or moon that gives life to will be eaten.

The correct statement as I heard it is: If its back faces heaven it is edible.

It basically means anything is edible.
