    In Sunday's Wall Street Journal is a very good article about farming of Pacific bluefin. "More Fish Make the Leap From Farm to Table". I think you guys will find it interesting so this is my PSA for the day. Happy Humpday...

    I like this line:

    “We sometimes wonder if these fish are a little stupid,” he said. “But in the wild, only one in tens of millions becomes an adult. Here, even in our imperfect hands, one in every one hundred fish survives now. If they are a little clumsy, maybe it’s no mystery.”

    Well at least leave the smart fish for us to tempt with our gears and techniques. I am all for that.

    Really great article, hopefully they can continue to perfect farming tuna with minimal local impact to take the pressure off the wild stocks. That would be a great victory for all of us.

    Curious if in the future we will release these fish to replenish wild stocks, like White Sea bass...

    Glad you guys liked it, as I did. I thought the author did an outstanding job. In my print version of the WSJ there is a little photo in the middle of researcher Hidemi Kumai with the quote, "These fish can't protest with their mouths so they protest by dying." I didn't realize they were so fragile. And, the information about the pens (rings a bell with all the commentary on pens on this forum) and how their use has impacted stocks. How about that discovery that the interday temp changes shut off the reproductive system. Very enlightening. Tuna move a lot to eat, to feel comfy, to then want to make whoopy...
