Title: People are being eaten again
Post by: Sasquatch Jim on March 21, 2015, 12:41:07 AM
  Here in Hawaii.  Not cannibalism, tiger sharks.
 At apopular beach near my place a doctor was swimming in shallow water when he was hit by a tiger shark.
 He fought it off and got ashore but was taken to a hospital on Oahu.  The beach was closed to swimmers until
 Park authorities decide the tiger has moved on.

The guy was from Kansas no less. I bet noodling for catfish here will seem pretty tame now.

We have something like ten billion of us. Any other species we'd have opened up a hunting season, hired government trappers and probably sprayed to "control the herd".   ::)

Cannibals called it Long Pork.

 And used a special four pronged square fork when eating it.
  Now they eat spam.  Sharks haven't discovered spam yet.

In Calif. shallow water shark attacks are usually by a hammerhead.  :+=copcar

Most of the attacks out here are by Tiger sharks.  No wholesale killing off of sharks here.  For some Hawaiians, it can be their family amakua (god).  Mine is the pueo and mo'o. (owl & gecko)  The VA doctor from Overland, KS got a warning.

  Those big sun fish eat jelly fish.  Because of that their flesh is not edible.  I don't think even other fish eat them.
 They just drift around barely faster than a jelly fish.

 Okay, I googled them and there are some things that eat them, like sea lions.

Last July a group of swimmers did an online "meetup" for an open water swim as they neared a pier their paths crossed with a hooked great white which then attacked a 40yo male. There is video from the "fishermen's" perspective.

I start open water swimming next month.  :D

I don't know of anybody who's ever been attacked by one. in your case they'd probably make an exception river boy.

Very odd fish.   They look like a bluefin tuna that got rear ended by a wood chipper.  We call them 'sunfish' because on nice days they float on their side on the surface, flipping water on themselves with their pectoral fin.  I've seen them big enough to beach a skiff on -- literally 10 feet or more across.  They're docile and semi-catatonic when I see them.  You can saunter up to them and touch them with your boathook.  Birds land on them.  Their poo glows in the dark.

 Maybe so, but they are tasty evil creatures.  Especially Ahi, Ono, Mahi mahi, ling cod, snapper, sea bass, and salt water caught salmon.
 Also various specie of water bugs like lobster, shrimp, and prawns.  Oh, and oyster on the half shell with lemon and red sauce.
 Probably many others that I am not familiar with.  There are some specie of fresh water fish that are edible but not as good as salt water types.
 I guess I am a piscavore for taste.

The people that fish from these piers aren't the brightest. As a matter of preemptive retribution I'm gonna eat more shark.

  Meat from sharks and rays is often punched out in little round pieces the size of a double thick checker
 and sold as scallops.

Jellyfish? We're going to need a faster boat!

And up next: the bacteria in the tsunami beach sand that is just one tiny step away from mutating into terrible nano sized godzillas!  :o

The sad part is that poachers bring up the skate or shark, use a big paper punch to mutilate the fins (where the faux scallop comes from) and then release the fish.

Post by: Sasquatch Jim on March 23, 2015, 02:23:32 AM
  And does it then grow the holes shut so it can be harvested again?
  BTW the foo scallops don't taste near as good as the real thing.
  When I used to skipper charter boat out of the mouth of the Colombia
  And fish the Oregon and Washington coast, we would occasionally get into loads of hake.
  It is a nasty toothy fish with a slimy skin that ruined fishing leaders and was worthless.
  Now commercial fishermen call them Pacific whiting and fish them for profit.
  They get ground up and squeezed into form as artificial crab meat in Safeway.
  It really doesn't taste like crab but most customers don't know that anyway.
  Around here it is sold as a form of surimi.  It is edible if you don't compare it with real fish.
  I may start eating it again as I am trying to lose weight.  Not only is it non fat but
  it is difficult to over eat it because it is so bland.
Title: Re: People are being eaten again
Post by: rodekyll on March 23, 2015, 02:46:02 AM
No, the holes don't heal.  The assholes just don't have the class to kill it.  They'd rather the evidence swim away, even if it's torn apart by pack members hours or weeks later.

Surimi is a generic name for re-formed fish protein that can come from many sources.  Hake (whiting) is one.  Other 'undermarketed' species, generic 'bycatch' and 'byproduct' are others.  It's marketed in the USA as "KRAB" and other catchy misnomers.  Originally it was developed as famine food for the world -- produced from about anything, on a moment's notice and stored or shipped to some disaster site, but it now rivals real fish in price.  We sometimes have it on the shelves in Sitka.  We make it.  We don't eat it.

Well, since you asked....

The eyes have higher commercial value and often cooked in thick soup.
