Fishy Fishy, come swim in my ocean!

So first little side not, I went to Moosewood for lunch the other day. i f you are looking for good vegetarian options for lunch, this was absolutely delicious! I have to say these first few days have not been bad. The only thing that stinks is that I am a little sick and craving chicken noodle soup! Oh well, tomato wil have to suffice.

On another note:

So I am eating fish this week (so not technically 100% vegetarian sorry!). If it makes it better, I’ve only had tuna once! However, I never realized how much of an impact fishing has on the environment as well.

Over fishing for our food needs decreases biodiversity in the oceans. In order to kill these large numbers of fish at a time commercial fishers use sonar, spotting planes, and fishing nets large enough to swallow 12 jumbo 747 jets.  However these methods are better for the environment than factory farmed fish. These farms dump waste, pesticides, and other chemicals directly into ecologically fragile coastal waters.
