(New York Daily News)   Would you eat a fish that you found dead on the beach? How about if you found thousands of them dead and have no idea how they died? Would you eat them then?   (nydailynews.com) divider line 61

Naw, fish are full of mercury.

Save a few, then put on a fish fry for the homeless.  Give it a few hours then deal with saved fish as appropriate.

Interesting solution.  So you work in urban planning then?  If not, would you like a job?

I would not eat them on the beach
I would not eat them with a leech
I would not eat them in the trench
I would not eat them in a pinch
I would not eat them with butter and lemon
I would not eat them to get to heaven

I do not like Manta Rays or Ham
I do not like them Saeed-I-Am

FTA: The unexpected harvest has produced a small economic boon for local fisherman, who have begun hauling the Manta rays off to local fish markets.

I'll be they leave out the whole "I found this as a carcass that washed up on shore" thing when selling this to random people.  Of course, there are a lot of people in government here in the US that would say that regulations saying they have to at least tell potential buyers this little morsel of information about the food they are about to ingest are "job killers."

Dead fish

"It's a gift from Allah" I jokingly say.

I read the article....

"The fish come every March, but this is the first time we have seen them in six years," said fisherman Eyad Almadoun. "We used to get them from Egypt and bring them through the tunnels, which was difficult because we had to cut the fish in two and it was very expensive. But today God provides them for us here."

In this case, pretty much the only ones who WILL be eating them are the Gazans...and I do hope for their sake that the restrictions on some fish issued by an Abrahamic-faith-antecedent weren't a halachic method of avoiding red tide contamination. :P

(Interestingly, this IS one of the few areas where there is a real difference between halal and kosher food regs.  Most folks who keep halal consider all fish (and shellfish) to be on the menu, whilst strict kosher diets require a fish to have scales.  It's been theorised that the reason for this is because algal-bloom-borne food illnesses are rarer in the Arabian Gulf (near where Islam got its start) than off the Mediterranean coast of the Levant (where algal blooms are fairly common)--basically an early method of preventing foodborne illness.)

And the week after that, a minor spat of Tseva Adom alerts on the Israeli TV as missles get lobbed back and forth after accusations of "YOU POISONED THESE FISH ON PURPOSE". :P  (This IS the Middle East, after all, and the religionationalists on BOTH sides of the Gaza wall like to bring up excuses for blowing the other side to bitty-bits like we Farkers tend to like boozahol.)

And yes, this is one reason I do worry--the other, of course, being that manta rays tend to be plankton feeders and thus would be particularly vulnerable to an algal bloom (and bioconcentrating toxins from an algal bloom).

`I'm not sure if The Times of Israel is a tabloid like NY Daily News or the Mail, but they offer a possible different explanation than they just washed up on shore:

Link

From that article:

Palestinian fishermen on Wednesday dragged hundreds of endangered rays out of the waters off the Gaza Strip, sparking an absurd international media sensation over where the fish came from.

Palestinian media reported that the cartilaginous fish had made a comeback in the waters off the Palestinian territory after years of absence, and that local fishermen had begun hauling them to the markets.

......

Videos published on YouTube showed Gazan fishermen lugging the massive fish out of boats offshore,

....

Like sharks on the kill, the UK's Daily Mail online picked up the story shortly after it was published, but rewrote it as the "Mystery of the massacred manta rays."

.....


Bullshiat fish kill story smells like rotten fish.

Now I was just thinking.... halal rules are similar to kosher ones.... wouldn't it be against dietary rules to eat something that was found dead?
