No, Cobra used hyrdofoils. GI Joe had the hovercraft.

Damn. Stupid rookie mistake.

That's a moray.

So, East Asian food habits are still screwed up, go figure. I guess they can't raise enough of them in captivity, so they resort to stealing them in their actual natural habitat.

So 237k sounds like a lot, but are they .08 each or 59,250 each? I need to know how big a truck to rent.

From the article: "In February 2020, a seafood salesman was found guilty of smuggling 200kg of glass eels worth more than £53m out of the UK."... is that a typo? Cuz that works out to 550k per lbs... what the hexk?

I caught some baby lamprey eels in the local river when I was a kid. They were about the size of pencils and dark coloured. The natives and some of the French eat eels, native only fish for salmon and trout mostly, Americans are  charged a lot of money to catch bass and perch. Welcome to the Maritimes. I also caucht crayfish, toads, frogs and salamanders but released them into the wild. Every red blooded man, woman or gay fished and hunting there. I regard fishing as a good book spoiled so I naturally went to university and then to become a city slicker.
