Few days ago my brother sent me this picture. It kept moving through my head. Imagine yourself eating a delicious fish and sudently feeling a hook tearing your guts. This is us, the homo sapiens, the wild capitalism and it's colateral effects. While we seat pasively on the sofa the sixth extinction event takes place and half of the species of our planet will become extinct in the next century. It's our shame and we are all guilty.
The picture belongs to a shearwater that got trapped by longline fishing in front of l'Escala. More than 70 got trapped. 27 of them were rescued and brought to CRAM, a foundation to preserve and rescue sea animals like protected birds, tourtles, mammals... 12 were still alive I don't know how many finaly survived.
Next time you buy fish, make sure it was captured by means that minimize by-catch
