I really love what I’ve seen of your blog so far, but I cringe a little at the mention of fish. The commercial fishing industry is criminal in the damage it does to the environment (not to mention virtually every extremely-depleted fish species), especially with regard to fishing debris in the form of “ghost” nets and lines. Here’s a heartbreaking story I stumbled across yesterday about right whale entanglement in lobster lines off the east coast: http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2014/10/25/chasing-bayla/tJuazyjBOsdKQTRVnAbh7K/story.html?p1=Article_Related_Box_Article .
Unfortunately, if you delve into the fishing industry, you’ll learn that many dolphins, seals, whales, turtles, birds, and virtually every other type of creature is cruelly harmed — if not directly as bycatch of fishing, then due to entanglement. For that reason, I can’t justify eating fish or seafood (or land-based meat for the cornucopia of land-based abuses). It is really no sacrifice, as we live in a garden of eden of fruits, vegetables, legumes, etc (all bulk, of course!).
Best wishes, and thank you for the inspiration!
