...I don't know about you, but I find can no good words to describe this picture...
Fish farms are the factory farms we don't see, and are one of the fastest growing sectors of intensive animal rearing. Around 100 billion farmed fish are being produced each year.
And don't be fooled into thinking we are 'protecting wild stocks' by these practices - far from it. It takes between 3-5 tonnes of small fish to produce 1 tonne of farmed fish.
Not off-cuts either - most fishmeal is made from highly nutritious small fish that could be (and were being) eaten by people.
These industries are a law unto themselves. Literally plundering the traditional food sources of countries all over the world to feed these grotesque methods of farming.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg..
