    another Hollyweird liberal vegetarian trying to turn the population away from meat/seafood?

    Similar to this load of bull sheif

    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    I watched it last night.   The thing about plastic is true.   There is a crap ton of it in the ocean.   But the show is so slanted, and so biased that it gives no alternative other than just not eating meat, of ANY kind.  I'm not going to live my life eating fungus and mold spores.

    God made me with teeth so I'm gonna use 'em.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    I saw it the other day and it seems to have a lot of opinions, being portrayed as "facts". Very slanted and fear mongering doc, especially with the shark argument. Anyone who has been on the water for more than 20 years will tell you there are more sharks out there now than ever. They AREN'T going extinct anytime soon.  The foolishness of trying to exclaim fish aren't very healthy to eat and contain all kinds of metals is just asinine. End of rant.

    Correction, some shark species have become very numerous, especially the coastal sharks like Sandbar and Bull.  But other species like Cuban Night Shark and Long-fin Mako are almost non-existent in our waters.  Cuban Night Shark used to be one of the most common species we encountered when longlining for swords in the 70s.  Although we releasede all our sharks back then, apparently others did not and now they are virtually gone from our waters.  Globally, it is true that sharks are being overfished.  You can't just look at what's happening here and assume that the same thing is going on everywhere in the world.  Overfishing for some species is real.

    Do I think there is commercialized overfishing in a lot of other countries, absolutely....is it worldwide and is all fish bad to eat like they try to insinuate? Absolutely false. Just because sharks in certain countries are overfished does not mean they are everywhere. Maybe the sharks have adapted and moved on from those area's and concentrated in others. I actively dive all over Florida, the keys and Caribbean and they are NOT endangered everywhere. Only in certain places.
