    What's The Catch (SBS fr. 30 Oct 2014)

    http://www.sbs.com.au/programs/whats-the-catch

    "What's the Catch? Matthew Evans discovers the shocking truth about Australia’s seafood and reveals what we should be eating and why. Premieres 8.30pm Thursday 30 October on SBS ONE."

    Episode 1: "Matthew shows the devastating impact of our insatiable demand for prawns and launches a campaign to help us all be part of the solution to save our seafood."

    Geeeeeeeeez.

    I've never liked Vannamei prawns (they just taste a bit off, artificial), knowing they are farmed in Thailand but not knowing exactly how. Until now.
    That's disgraceful.

    Brutal sea-bottom dragging trawlers scraping anything and everything from the sea floor, resulting in around 30% max of the catch saleable as it is, the rest called "trash fish" - minced protein food primarily for the farmed prawns.

    Sickening.

    Yes, very informative.
    So, boycott Vannamei prawns - stay away from fast-food / cheap eatery prawns which are almost certainly Vannamei - those trawlers raping the seafloor and ecosystems & feeding that industry with that "Trash Fish" is disgraceful.

    Lookin forward to tonight's episode (2 of 3 apparently).

    So we can't trust the sharkies now.
    Good show though.

    This has been an excellent series to watch.

    So much to it all, much "food for thought".
    Good on Matthew Evans and his production team for compiling a relatively unbiased, unsensationalized, non-commercial program on some core modern aspects to some seafood industries.

    Hmmm..
