I personally like the idea of shellfish aquaculture. These are animals that stay quiet, they stay where you put them, and they clean up the water. ---->>>

If you think of having a family as being loved as a child, cared for - I did not experience that. ---->>>

People don't know the past, even though we live in literate societies, because they don't trust the sources of the past. ---->>>

The crisis of the fisheries is similar to our economy. This is not one fishery failing, but the whole system. ---->>>

Tilapia have often been represented as the aquatic chicken, and it's perfectly justified. ---->>>
