Environmentalists and animal rights activists aren't too happy with restaurant chain Legal Sea Foods' new ad campaign.
The restaurant is mocking "Save the Animals" PSAs by playfully saying we should save the fish of the sea…..to eat them.
Awww. We don't want to think of them that way!
Watch one of the commercials (above) and two more after the jump to see what we're talking about.
A seafood bowl in Hokkaido, Japan contains salmon roe, seaweed, some other things, AND A DANCING SQUID!
The creature isn't hoping his perforce is so moving you'll show him mercy. This dancer is dead!
When you pour soy sauce on the dead squid, the muscles contract in response to signals from neurons, which transmit signals around the body by means of a series of sequential influxes of sodium across the cell membrane into the neuron.
Doesn't that sound delish?
Robert Redford is speaking out against the Pebble Mine, a huge copper and gold deposit poised for development in southwest Alaska, which also hosts the world's last and best wild salmon streams.
Redford posted a blog entry Thursday morning saying he's not against mining but is against "putting mega-mines where they don't belong."
He also is speaking out in a New York Times advertisement paid for by the Natural Resources Defense Council asking mining companies Rio Tinto and Anglo American to leave Bristol Bay alone.
Redford describes Pebble as a disaster-in-the making. But the mining companies maintain they can develop the mine responsibly and without harming fish.

A species of salmon believed to have been extinct for 70 years has been found in Japan!
The Kokanee Salmon or "Kunimasu" was discovered in Lake Saiko, Japan near Mount Fuji!
The fish was thought to have died out in 1940, when a hydroelectric project made its native lake in northern Akita Prefecture more acidic, but a science professor has found the species alive and well!
Professor Tetsuji Nakabo, who found the fish with his team of researchers, said:
"I was really surprised. This is a very interesting fish – it's a treasure. We have to protect it and not let it disappear again."
The professor says if the current enviroment is maintained, the lake has sufficient kunimasu for the species to survive!
It sounds crazy, but salmon-skin leather is eco-friendly and a good way for owners of yachts to cut back on their carbon footprint.
The leather is manufactured by a German company and made from salmon skin that would normally be discarded — so it’s actually eliminating waste.
Sounds fabulous to us, just as long as it doesn’t smell like fish!
