Extinction of species has been happening since the first speciation took place.  Seriously.  Animals go extinct all the time.  Now I don't believe in a planner so I sure as hell don't believe in a grand plan.  But extinction has been happening for millions of years.  It seems built into eco-system.  So folks, stop farking with nature and trying to reverse extinctions.  Let that shiat go.  If the species can't cut it then it will die out.  All we are doing is prolonging its agony.

Cows aren't going extinct.  Do you know why?  They taste so good that we farm them.

Maybe these animals should of thought of that when Darwin was selecting them for taste.

Be sure to get your customer appreciation $1 sub at Jimmy John's. The owner needs a couple more stuffed trophies in his den to contribute to The Natural Order of Things®.

The Atlantic cod is the saddest one... fished to the brink of extinction to make shiatty English food.

None of that is wrong, but the rate at which species are going extinct is crazy and it's mostly our fault.  Holocene extinction, we're right int he middle of it.  I can't see such a loss of biodiversity as a good thing.

Luckily, virtually nothing labeled "cod" at fish markets is actually cod.

The leopards are doing better than that, at least in the US.

TFA didn't mention that the Northern White Rhino subspecies is effectively extinct, with only one apparently sterile male and two females (probably sterile) left alive even in captivity. None are known to exist in the wild.

I'm used to eating the fish with the head and whatnot, so I can tell some apart. Benefits of growing up on a tropical coast. I even eat the eyes. My mom's godmother lived through the Spanish civil war and imparted some life lessons about not wasting anything.

But you filet any fish and I have no clue what it is.

Halibut?
Cod and haddock maybe. Buy sole? Sword fish? Sea Bass? Flounder? Halibut?

  Sounds like you only eat Haddock or "cod"

Vaquita is Spanish for little cow.

The ones I thought were considered "white fish" were the lighter, flaker fish.  Swordfish I wouldn't think is considered white fish because it's a much fattier denser meat like Tuna, Salmon or Shark.

Sole I can't really tell the difference (I can barely recall eating Sole).  Flounder, not fried but if it's broiled maybe I'd be able to pick it out.  Sea bass I could tell wasn't cod, but that has an unusually close set flaking pattern.  Halibut I wouldn't know if you slapped me in the face with an uncleaned specimen.  I could probably tell if I sampled them side by side, but I'm talking about being served something broiled/grilled/fried and just being told "fish".

The heavier fishes just for kicks:
Salmon is Salmon and you had the sense not to mention it.  Tunas I can't tell the difference between, but I can tell I'm eating Tuna.  Shark I might mistake for Swordfish.

Well, they're faced with a new food source.

Let's do what we can to eat them before they're all gone.
