WWF today asks Malaysians, I in particular, who relish seafood to be selective in what kind of fish we have for our meals.
Do not go for those in endangered list. Go for the more abundant ones instead.
From the list I saw Kerisi (bream), pomfret both the black and white varieties (I am not worried about these fish as they are far too expensive for us), sotong katak (cuttlefish), etc
Instead it asks us to change to Mullets (belanak), Mackerel (both Indian and Spanish), tuna, kerapu (grouper),lala, etc
I hope WWF will publicise the list of fishes and other seafood that Malaysian should refrain from eating,
But this has one major drawback. The more you want people to stop eating it, the more people will try to gat their hands and mouths on to that fish.
The more restricted the fish is the more expensive they will be. The more expensive the fish is the more it will be hunted. It is just a sort of vicious cycle.
Supply will stop once the demand is not there. Wasteful use of dragnets should be totally prohibited.
