    Costa ads in magazines...

    You know, the ones with fish made from sunglasses parts. Well, it looks like someone actually made one. If this is real, imagine what this thing cost?!?!?

    I'm guessing about $50 tops. Hellacious markup on that product.

    Cost to who ??? I'm guessing Costa has ~$5/pair in them... & ~1/2 that is 'marketing'...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' or 'Undergoing Overfishing'

    All the Costa fish are real. They auctioned off the marlin at The Billfish Foundation awards banquet late last year. I can't remember the winning bid but I think it was like five grand...(money was donated to TBF).
