and lastly

just one more thing about fish: this morning npr had a
story on sustainable fish farming - international waters are sorely over-fished and if we're to get all our omega 3 fatty acids, we had better figure out a better way to farm-raise fish.

one option is to raise them in deep-water net enclosures, although environmental experts worry that fish can escape these (or any) nets and mingle with the wild population, to the detriment of both. don't know how what the fish are actually FED might change, however.

conscientiousness is such a drag. you do the right thing from one perspective (say, health or environmental purity) and the wrong from another (species conservation). grr.
