Speaking of fish there is an excellent article in the Guardian describing the destruction of the world's greatest fishery, Newfoundland's Grand Banks, for those of you who haven't read Kurlansky's Cod. Meanwhile, Ray Hilbornet al., "Biocomplexity and fisheries sustainability," PNAS100/11 (2003): 6564-8 describe one of the most productive remaining fisheries, Bristol Bay Alaska sockeye, whose fisherman just lost a massive antitrust suit against processors and distributors.

Oh yeah: stop eating farmed fish for fuck's sake.
