Hilary Swank Approves Of Giant Dead Fish

Filed under: Hilary SwankFoodFish

Hilary Swank posed with a giant dead fish!!

Hilary Swank was recently at the Pure Food Fish Market in Seattle.

It's a fourth generation fish market in Seattle's renowned Pike Place Market and Hilary went there to get some fresh seafood.

She apparently was having a dinner party and bought king salmon, scallops, king crab, oysters and mussels. Mmmm! Sounds tastyyyy!

While there, she posed for a pic (above) with one giannnnnt fish!

One of the fishmongers there said:

"She was absolutely delightful."

We bet she was!

We wonder if they offered her a discount in exchange for the picture.

Heck, we'd pose with all sorts of fish for free salmon! LOLz!

Kristin Chenoweth Chows Down On Sea Urchin On The Tonight Show Show & Feels Disgusted!

How CRAY!

Sea urchin may not be the tastiest creature to eat, but considering that Kristin Chenoweth was trying to rack up some dough for her charity, Maddie's Corner, which is named after her pooch, she ate a spiny little critter on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Considering that the Hit and Run actress cannot stand seafood, she only agreed to eat it because she had a bet with the host. Leno told the starlet that as long as she took a bite of sea urchin, he would donate $$$ to her foundation that helps rescue and shelter doggies.

Luckily for Kristin, Jay had only promised to write a check for $500, but after she actually ate the urchin, he doubled the amount to $1,000.

And even though Miz Chenoweth was happy that she left the show with monies for her charity, she took to her Twitter to write:

New Study Shows Crabs Feel Pain

We're not sure what the need was, but we're pretty sure the crabs didn't like this experiment.

The Queen's University Belfast shocked a group of crabs to see if they experienced pain. As one (with common sense) would expect, the crabs wanted to avoid the shocks.

The message behind the experiments is a bit confusing…

The Tuna Industry's Dirty Little Secret?

Filed under: Sad SadFish

Greenpeace has just released a new campaign to inform consumers about the negative side of the canned tuna industry.

The organization hired Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Mark Fiore to work on the viral video and get their message across.

According to the Greenpeace website:

Here's the issue: catching tuna in a manner that keeps the price hovering around $1-$2 per can is difficult. It's a challenging process for a number of reasons, not least of which is that most species of tuna are constantly on the move across the vastness of the open ocean. Chasing these schools around is a time- and resource-intensive process – especially with oil prices on the perpetual upswing – but the tuna industry has found a way to cut some pretty significant corners. Unfortunately, this has led to any number of nasty consequences, and those smiling bumblebees and luxuriating mermaids on the tuna cans at your neighborhood grocery store have done a great job covering them up… until now.

Dancing Zombie Squid

Filed under: YouTubeSea CreaturesDisgusting!

Yummy!

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?
