I like this hashtag, it produces more hope. With enough hard work and elbow grease we aren’t completely screwed. There is hope for us to be sustainable if people are willing to put in enough work.November 14, 2019 at 9:04 am in reply to: #beforeyoubite #196517
This is a great hashtag, there’s a lot of people who would rather turn a blind eye than to really think about where our food came from. We need more of that thought process.November 6, 2019 at 12:29 pm in reply to: Studying, or lack there of… #196401
I’m usually pretty good about taking notes, I guess more in classes that have more concepts and terms to remember (not saying this one does not, but classes like calc and chem). In this class I haven’t been the best about taking notes. I am for sure going to try and be better about it. But as far as essays go, I do that same thing, just try and get it done and then read through and fix it. It has always worked for me, rather than making an outline and doing that whole ordeal.
I agree with you on the fact that this class does seem more difficult to take notes for, partly from not having text and the pace of the lectures, and the fact that your online may be more difficult. Your tactic to taking on the essay does seem pretty great though, as far as i usually go I just send it when it comes to writing essays. Maybe I’ll give making an outline a try.October 23, 2019 at 5:40 pm in reply to: Priorities to improve the ocean #196225
Mass industrial fishing would benefit the local communities, plus create more jobs in the area instead of just cheaply buying seafood from a mass company. Getting rid of mass harvest would be a huge advancement, especially since so much of what’s harvested isn’t used up and gets thrown away.October 23, 2019 at 5:35 pm in reply to: Redefining Marine Protected Areas #196224
Our MPA’s should be treated with the same seriousness and same enforcement as we treat our national parks. MPA’s should have more attention brought to them as an untouchable area for wild populations to flourish once again.September 25, 2019 at 8:25 pm in reply to: Francis Galton domesticated fish #196019
I don’t agree that Atlantic Salmon would pass the test, they do meet more points than Sea Bass do but in the end neither one meets all the points that Galton presents to be domesticated.September 25, 2019 at 8:23 pm in reply to: Domesticating Fish by Galton's Criteria for Domesication #196018
Your right that neither one of these species can pass this series of tests, the prove to have more issues when domesticatedSeptember 18, 2019 at 9:24 pm in reply to: Sustainability #195914
You make a good point that we shouldn’t try and predict what the future generations will need from us and that a population shouldn’t just use up an entire resource just because they have alternatives for it.September 18, 2019 at 9:22 pm in reply to: Sustainability #195913
I agree that substitutes are important but that they shouldn’t completely replace a wild population though.September 11, 2019 at 9:40 pm in reply to: AquaAdvantage vs Salmo Domesticus #195793
Genetic engineering of food is a great technology that humans have embraced, but I do absolutely agree that we should proceed with caution as there can be harmful affects onto the natural environment. But I still believe the main priority should be restoring the wild populations.September 11, 2019 at 9:37 pm in reply to: Frank the Franken Fish Farmer. #195791
I agree with you, Green does a great job at showing what they can do to not replenish the environment but simply create genetically engineered fish that grow faster and larger.September 3, 2019 at 9:23 pm in reply to: Wild Salmon vs Salmo Domesticus #195639
In the book he explains how many livelihoods do depend on the harvest of not only Wild Chinook Salmon , but all Salmon. The fact that humans have started to depend on domesticated Salmon as a food resource means that our fisheries need help. I do agree with you that Salmon need to be able to thrive on their own without human factors changing their genes and creating competition.September 3, 2019 at 9:18 pm in reply to: Rise of Salmo Domesticus #195635
In retrospect the idea of farmed salmon replacing the fall of wild salmon population seems great, but so far it has caused a number of issues. With more research there could be a way for farmed Salmon to be less problematic. I do agree with you that the best solution would be to focus on the increase in the Wild Salmon population.
