Got Ocean Destruction? A Chicken of the Sea Recipe to Die For [video]

Posted: 11/04/11 11:22 AM ET

As a self-professed foodie, I am always looking for new and exciting recipes but this one from commercial tuna giant Chicken of the Sea is pretty over the top.

A new video out today by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Mark Fiore shows in graphic detail the recipe for ocean decimation and destruction through the use of indiscriminate industrial fishing practices like long lines and the floating aggregating devices (FAD's).

These two unnecessary fishing practices used by many companies in the commercial tuna industry needlessly kill tens of thousands of sharks, rays, turtles and baby tuna every year -- the industry calls this "bycatch," I call it BS.

Watch it and send it to your foodie friends -- we can make a difference as a community through the choices of what we use to cook:
