I do believe that its necessary to know just where and how your food was made, especially with all the illegal fishing being done these days. In fact, not a lot of people do much research on topics these days, they just take it a face value without knowing the specific details. We need to stop this kind of attitude.
I believe that this is a good hashtag. We need to spread the awareness some fisheries, while currently depleted, are on the rise again, that we haven’t lost the entire species, and that there is still hope for the future.
I was a little caught off guard too by the definitions section of the exam, luckily a lot of what we went over regarded those topics and I was able to answer them pretty easily.
I do like the method of outlining writing responses. Being able to look at a study sheet would be nice to if I really need to memorize a topic.
I believe that the pollock has more commercial value than the cod industry, as with just fifty years of fishing the species brought billionaires within a few years of fishing it.
I believe that the use of cod was more different than the use of pollock, as pollock was used for both meal and food while the cod were just used for food, and the pollock is a tastier meat than cod.
I believe that the management regulations based off fish population should always be monitored. The population changes every day, from both human interaction and natural events (ex. storms, increased predator presence besides humans). I do agree that the regulations need to be set by the population of the fish in question, because only they can be the ones to replenish it, and if we make the set by our own standards, then we run the possibility of overfishing.
I believe that this can be taken a step further in that only countries that have a certain high level of fishery development should reallocate the subsidies, and let the rest of the countries volunteer should they feel the need to further help it.
I do believe that we should keep a better effort towards announcing the numerical populations of years past to the public in order for they too to understand the need for regulations on fish population. If we do this, then we can make sure that the public can know better when the next season comes.
I agree that in order to maintain the population at a sustainable level, both for the human economy and the ecosystems capacity, our management must always set regulations in response to returning fish populations. If we don’t, then we run the risk of overfishing the populations.
I don’t believe that Atlantic salmon, nor any fish in general can fit the test, considering that we have no idea what they feel about us and that many of them are sensitive to environmental ques to complete their life cycle. however, if we weren’t looking for a complete score of 100%, I would have to give it to the Atlantic salmon over the sea bass.
I don’t believe that no fish can effectively fit into the criteria set by Galton. We have no way of know just how they think of us and many of them are sensitive to specific environmental ques that it would make it very hard to raise them, such as temperature and mating season.
I do believe that the wild salmon need this much deserved break, and the farmed and AquAdvantage salmon are breed/engineered for this exact purpose. If we are to look for a future where these animals still exists, and are also thriving, we must give ease the pressure that has been growing with the growth of the global population.
I slightly disagree with this, if only in the sense that farmed salmon can be a good substitute over the wild salmon so that they are eased of the pressure of feeding the world. I do believe that resources, both natural and non-natural, need to be kept in a balance so that they are still available for the next generation, however we must also keep in mind the potential of finding alternatives to spread the pressure more than choke it into one commodity.
I believe that we should lesson the costs of closed aquatic systems so that we can effectively and efficiently farm salmon so that we can both keep the prices of salmon down and be able to lesson the pressure of wild salmon stock. As for genetic testing, I do agree that we should keep that as a last resort to all other options.
