Here is some interesting commentary from the New York Times.
The idea of eating the flesh from a genetically modified/chemically constructed fish is somewhat disturbing, at least to me. But, what about those Sour Patch Kids I love so much? Not so much natural goodness in there I imagine. A pretty good sized portion of the things I consume is probably far from natural.
It's an interesting discussion and debate, that of genetically modified foods alone, but combine the topic with that of struggling fisheries and it goes a little deeper. Even deeper, if you let it go further, is a discussion of man and nature, as this writer eludes to. I can't help but think of a conversation from a film I've seen once or twice:
"Look, nothing is fucked here, man."
"Nothing is fucked?! The goddamn plane has crashed into the mountain!"
