More Thoughts About Fishing
Tom Scholz, BOSTON
"We are very excited to be able to help support Sea Shepherd in their heroic fight against the horrifying slaughter of whales, dolphins, and other sea creatures for commercial gain. BOSTON is proud to be associated with this desperately needed effort to protect innocent life in our oceans from those who have so little respect for it."
D.H. Lawrence, "Whales Weep Not"
"They say the sea is cold, but the sea contains the hottest blood of all, and the wildest, the most urgent."
Gov. Togiola T.A. Tulafono
"Sharks have been an important part of our ocean, reef and cultural environments. Their disappearance would be devastating to the environment and our Samoan culture. An ocean without sharks is completely inconceivable to me. Sharks have supported the health of our ocean, our fisheries and our economy, and should remain that way for generations to come. American Samoa is committed to playing a serious role in ensuring that these wonderful animals survive for our future."
UK Fisheries Minister Richard Benyon
"Japan's slaughter of whales, supposedly in the name of science is cruel and scientifically unnecessary. We urge Japan to stop this needless killing. There is absolutely no justification for continued whaling and we will continue to oppose whaling at every possible opportunity."
"Domestic cats eat more tuna than all the world's seals together. We catch 50-70 fish from the sea to raise one farm raised salmon. We are vegans because it is an ecological crime to eat fish; we are vegans because we are marine conservationists and not because we are animal rights activists."
