How/why is fish farming pathetic?

I'd rather have a U.S-raised yellow perch than a Chinese or Vietnamese shrimp that grew up in sludge. Read your food labels, folks!

People like you want to go to Red Lobster and pay 10 bucks for a nice dinner, but have ZERO clue where and how your food was produced.

I pronounce YOU the pathetic one!

Hardly. I frequent my farmers market weekly and know the farmers along with the conditions in which the food was grown or raised. I too would rather have a fish with origin off the coast of the US. However, I will not support fish "farmed" in such ways as described in the article. I prefer natural, whole foods...not frankenfish "developed" by scientists.

Way to completely fail on your assumption though. Feel free to eat your genetically engineered food, I'll stick to more natural methods.
