I think this is a great hashtag. I think the future is one of the most important things we have to look at in managing a fishery, or an ecosystem.
I agree that there needs to be more of a focus on the entire ecosystem.
Maybe for the next test you could try and read through the slide shows? Those are kind of more textbook like.
I agree, coming back to something really helps me actually remember it. I usually end up cramming anyway though. Days should have more hours.
I agree that the pollock are managed much better than the cod, making them a much more successful fishery.
I agree that they’re very similar. Hopefully the managers of the pollock fishery can keep the greed in check.
I agree that this should be a priority, but it was also covered by Greenberg
I agree, there are so many benefits to emphasizing local foods. It’s better for the local economy, and also the food is generally of higher quality than food that’s shipped in. However, there would still have to be shipping because it’s hard to sustain a large population without it.
I like your example, I never really stopped to consider when my dad said things like that either. I like that you address that looking on the bright side, isn’t really what solves problems.
I like how you defined shifting baselines. Yours is much more concise than mine.
I agree that neither fish really fits the bill for Galton’s criteria. I also agree that his criteria aren’t very accurate when it comes to fish domestication since no fish will warm up to people, and they generally don’t reproduce freely.
I completely agree. According to Galton’s criteria the European Sea bass is probably one of the worst fish to try to domesticate.
I don’t necessarily agree with what you’ve said about Solow’s ideas on sustainability. Solow talked about the complete depletion of resources like oil, how it was okay to use it as long as you gave something back. He also commented that there is no reason to save a species or an environment unless humans benefit from it. To me it doesn’t sound like you agree with his argument.
I definitely agree with your thoughts on sustainability and the future generations, as well as the flaw in Solow’s idea. I didn’t write my post in a way that agrees with what you’ve said about the salmon, but I do think your argument is more logical than mine.
I completely agree with you. I also thing that even if it wasn’t necessary for us to genetically modify our food, people would do it anyway on a small scale, due to scientific curiosity, and efficiency.
