      Respond to the following prompt with a topic post of approximately 300 words. By 11:59 pm on Wednesday, respond with at least two comments on the forum. In the first 50 pages of Four Fish, the author Paul Greenberg travels to the lower Yukon River and is seemingly surprised by a lot of what he sees and is learning. Quite quickly the conversation shifts between the decline of wild Chinook salmon and rise of Salmo domesticus.  Based on the chapter and in your own opinion, how does it seem these issues are related?

In the next section of Four Fish, we are introduced to AquaAdvantage salmon. Briefly compare and contrast AquaAdvantage salmon with Salmo domesticus  and respond to the following statement "genetic engineering is the obvious next technological step in the history of human's cultivating our food".

      Respond to the following prompt with a topic post of approximately 300 words by 11:59 pm on Tuesday. By 11:59 pm on Wednesday, respond with at least two comments on the forum. First read Robert Solow's essay on Sustainability (CLICK LINK FOR PAPER sust-solow)  and address the following:  What does sustainability mean to you and how does it fit, if it fits at all, into Solow's definition? Do you agree that sustainability depends on the availability of substitutes? If aquaculture provides a substitute for wild caught fish, then is it appropriate to think that aquaculture is sustaining wild fisheries?

      Respond to the following prompt with a topic post of approximately 300 words by 11:59 pm on Tuesday. By 11:59 pm on Wednesday, respond with at least two comments on the forum. In the second section of Four Fish, Greenberg introduces us to European Sea Bass and chronicles the challenges of growing this species in captivity.  Using Francis Galton's criteria to help decide which species are suitable for domestication (hint see page 89) briefly compare and contrast Atlantic salmon and Sea Bass as good candidates for aquaculture. Ultimately, do you think these species pass the 'test' on being good candidates for aquaculture?

      Respond to the following prompt with a topic post of approximately 300 words by 11:59 pm on Tuesday. By 11:59 pm on Wednesday, respond with at least two comments on the forum. In the section on Cod in Four Fish, Greenberg introduces us to Daniel Pauly's famous syndrome of Shifting Baselines. Describe in your own words what shifting baselines means to you and how you think it played into the demise of northern cod. Finish by proposing a way to avoid falling into the trap of shifting baselines.
