“We’re catching fish down in South America like anchovies and all kinds of things like that and processing it to feed to other fish. It’s a mug’s game. You actually lose in the food chain. We shouldn’t be doing that. If we have to farm fish, it should be tilapia farmed on land — it should have a vegetarian diet. It’s just a bad idea.”
This is an opinion echoed if not in its detail, at the very least in principal, by Bruce Sandison and many others including myself.
Incidentally, isn’t Bateman a great wildlife artist!
