really liked it

It's a story of unintended consequences. Farmed Fish is a big idea response to pressures on the wild fish stock in the commercial fisheries. It holds promise, but has primarily worsened the circumstances of the wild stock while degrading the fish we eat. Sadly, most fish farming is based on false logic, erroneous assumptions, and a green ideology that uses simplistic, and often untrue, stories to stir emotional reactions and garner political power. Two axioms should be held sacrosanct in this and every initiative, "First, Do No Harm" and "Keep It Simple." In other words, include input from all stakeholders, make the smallest changes first, verify the impact, and then make corrections and modifications.
