Ok, I wanna start off saying that maybe you should have written a little more on this subject since the book suggested so much when it comes to the similarities and differences between the two fisheries. Secondly, maybe add some more detail about what your talking about instead of leaving it so blank and open to anything. It would add more character to what your trying to say and get a better view point across.
I totally agree with your points and I love how you described each point you made. This included the quick statement of how much older the Northern Cod fishery is and how important both sides are.
I see what your trying to say but the way your putting it would do more harm than good. Mass industrial fishing actually creates jobs and is a great economic factor to the economy. Taking it away would get rid of jobs, the mass amounts of money coming into these industries would be gone, and certain areas that rely on these businesses would loose their lifestyles. At this point, the reasons we haven’t gotten rid of it already is because it would cause way too much harm to everyone around it to get rid of it.
I definitely agree with you that there need to be certain limits on fishing gear and that it can greatly impact the organisms or fish around the damaged areas it leaves behind. There’s a ton of things to go on about this but also think, you shouldn’t focus on it all since not all of it is damaging or harmful to the wildlife and environment around it. This is a great idea but maybe narrow the topic down a little instead of including more what’s truly needed.
I like how to give an example of an experience that you’ve had before. It’s also a nice touch that you gave a few other stories from the old fisherman and that you were able to notice a few changes yourself.
Personally, you scored the salmon wrong. I would have given the salmon a much higher score because they make a lots of great points that the salmon have high scores in certain areas. Like hardiness and comfort levels.
I agree that both species can’t completely pass this ‘test’ or criteria that Galton has created. Though I’d have to disagree that the salmon are not suitable for aquaculture, because they are pretty good at surviving in a captive environment more than most fish. With this I’d have to say they’re pretty well suited for aquaculture.
You have a good point on questioning Solow’s opinion on sustainability and substituting resources. I agree with you that we need to watch when substituting resources for it can negatively impact us humans and the ecosystem.
I’d like to agree with your view point of how people are today and that we can’t take advantage of our resources like we do. You quoted Solow but never identified whether you agree with him or not. So do you agree with what he said? Do you agree about his opinion on equal value or what’s you opinion on the subject?
I’d have to disagree with you on how genetic engineering is the possible future of the people main source of food, but I will agree that salmon should be farmed as if they were in the wild and be a bit more expensive to help decrease the amount taken, which will help add to the breeding population.
I agree with your opinion on how much protein we actually need to live and that we are taking unneeded extremes for something that we could also get from plants. I mean I understand that we need some meat in our diets to give us nutrients that plants can’t giVe us, but at this point we need to slow down on taking large amounts from a certain population of species.
I like how you state both sides of what farming fish can offer. There are, as you said, a lot of opportunities for farming fish but there are also a lot of risks and problems. I like your opinion on the subject too and I’d like to say I agree with you as well.September 4, 2019 at 9:13 pm in reply to: Relation Between Chinook Decline & Salmo Domesticus #195695
I agree with you that the wild population is being overlooked because we’re still harvesting large amounts from both wild and tame. I know there are certain people that make a living off the fish but we could start concerning ourselves a little more about the population and health of the fish we eat.
