Anyways more info - apparently this new spinoff involves Hippies fighting Whalers in the Faeroe Islands. I have no idea where that is.
What you all can expect from this show is dumb hippies who think they are pirates, but really are brain dead and make so many mistakes I'm surprised none of them died yet!
I know we have pro whalers / anti-whalers FReepers. Please no flames, we've had enough of that today.
Where? I like flames! hee hee. Post a link. I'll go get popcorn.
Thanks for adding me.
I have a couple of questions about blue fin tuna populations.
First, when I do a search on the subject I get a lot of hits on articles warning about dangerous declines in blue fin tuna populations but most of the articles (like this one: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=bluefin-tuna-stocks-threatened-cites-japan-monaco) are written in 2009.
Has something happened since 2009 to stabilize the populations, like some kind of restrictions on the use of long-lines or something else?
Second, I remember a discussion a long time ago on another forum on this subject and a person posting there was a commercial fisherman and he said that commercial fishing can never drive a species to extinction because long before it reaches that point it will become commercially non-viable and fisherman will stop fishing for it and then its population will rebound. Does that sound right?
There are a lot of knowledgeable people on this thread so I thought I’d throw these two questions out there.
The thread itself, by the way, is very interesting.
