That's right. I've taken the big goose step. I've become a Nazi.
My new diet relies on my eating more fish. So I want to do the right thing by our delicious little sea critters and eat only those fish who are happily procreating enough to be sustainable.
So, I went to Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch to learn which fish I should eat and which I shouldn't.
Apparently, Chilean Sea Bass and Swordfish are too delicious for their own good.
Armed with this knowledge, I now know to ask my local fish vendor questions like where the fish is from, how it was caught and did it leave behind any children in salty, tearful mourning?
And what do I do with this new information? Like any reformed sinner, I become a scold. This morning I looked for fish recipes and found a site that not only encourages people to eat swordfish, but actually insults the fish by calling it "snappy."
I left a comment. I asked if they would soon be posting recipes for baby seal. I told them to hang their nets in shame. I told their readers not to buy swordfish.
So I can't deny it. I've become a Nazi. A fish Nazi.
I encourage you to do the same.
