I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right forum.<br><br>
Anyhoo, I read this article in The Sun-Herald (April 20th 2003) and I thought it was very interesting, and sad also.<br><br>
I thought I would post it here and that way anybody who would like to, can forward the link to someone that they think it might make a difference in.<br><br><br><br>

Cheeno, that was so sad. I have always wondered why eat fish if the water is so polluted. Those fishes are swimming in water that we can't remotely drink even if we have a purifier because there is so much pollution.

Cheeno,<br><br><br><br>
To help convey your intent for saying what you do here... I have share that highly tangible sentiment, and have quoted in the <b><GOOD></b> for you to thankyou for bringing it to our attention!..<br><br>
==============================================<br><br><br><br>
Below is an overview I put together....<br><br>
(not specific to Mercury, but just the situation in general)<br><br><br><br>
I mean its not like we can even use the phrase "plenty more fish in the sea" any more with any credibility, due to things I see on TV programmes how man is far less aware of the devastation to aquatic/marine life than on land......and we already know mans environmental endeavours on land leave a lot to be desired too...<br><br>
......so hell knows how fish cope, seems they are just "fair game" to fishermen, to quote yet another fiendish fishy turn of phrase by predatory mans insistence on over consumption and the coral they needlessly destroy with thier trawler boat anchors and nets<br><br>
....Coral that takes hundreds of years to form, and yet destroyed in seconds.... and the huge mass catches of fish by the way often involve the capture of many fish which are simply disgarded, and not back into the seas but typically left to die without return to the ocean. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"> Technology is available to reduce this waste of fish that is supposed to provide solutions to this but is far too slow in maifesting to combat such underwater mass slaughter...<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
