As recently as the 1960's you could go to the ocean and decide what it was you wanted to catch, and you stopped because you had too much.  Now?  You're lucky if an entire party boat catches a few garbage fish.

This old world is in trouble, people.

I thought fish scientists stayed in their schools?

My question is:  Who sampled the fish scientists?

I don't even like fish.

That is... amazing! No, really, that is incredibly damned cool if you're a scientist. I can imagine my ridiculously-unmitigated glee to hear someone say, "...no, really, I've got everything you've ever wanted for your research, just down the hall in a box, complete with preserved samples directly tied to the measurements & dates applicable to each sample. No, you can have it - go nuts!"

I have scientist friends who would've killed (and killed me, TBH) to get their hands on something like this for their respective research projects.

Did you go to some kind of school to learn how to be like that, or does it just come naturally?

That answers my question, I guess.   It just comes naturally, unlike your mom who needs artificial stimulation.

James Michener in his book Alaska wrote a story about a salmon cannery that set up along a river and strung a big net across and caught every fish, put them in cans, and shipped them to the lower 48.

They worked 6 days a week and 1/2 day in Sunday.  On Sunday they removed the net for 1/2 the day.  They made lots of money for 7 years.

On the 8th year, no salmon showed up to be caught.

Shut up, just play the record

Whole samples of fish scientists, or just body parts? Biopsies?
