A professional fisherman and good friend shows how he took the best cuts of fish from hundreds of tons of Coral Trout during his career hand line fishing in The Swain Reefs, (Tropic of Capricorn zone, east coast of Australia).
55% of each fish was ‘recovered’ the balance became food for other fish – which is not a bad thing.
Coral trout are not wasted like this in Taiwan. For a start the fish is used in soup where everything can be eaten.
In Australia most fish was eaten the English way, fried in an egg batter and served with chip potato (French fries).
Today people worry about shark fining and the waste that is involved by illegal fishermen (outside of Taiwan).
If they realized all the other waste still occurring they would be better informed to make judgments.
