Media hound Daniel Pauly (he’s also moonlites as a fisheries biologist at the University of British Columbia, Canada) has recommended a full boycott of Pacific salmon in order to preserve them.
According to the report in The Tyee, Pauly says a full boycott of salmon consumption “represents something that is worthwhile”.
Although we don’t quite agree with Pauly, we do agree that this statement will create a lot of dialogue about what really threatens salmon on North America’s West Coast – and a fair bit of media attention for Pauly – something he’s never avoided!
But what we find most interesting is that the article also quotes some “conservation” groups like the Wild Salmon Centre, who “would never call for a moratorium on eating salmon”. Another group called the T Buck Suzuki Foundation (a group of salmon fisherman masquerading as an environmental group) also denounces Pauly’s suggested boycott.
Good “conservation” you bunch of “conservation” groups.
So, what’s the most important outcome from this slightly outrageous comment from Daniel Pauly? It may actually flush out the true agendas behind a few of these supposed “environmental” groups.
