    you need to redo your research on tuna.tge FIRST one to be sold is the expensive one due to it being a type of trophy for the buyers to boast about.you dont go fishing for tuna and make 1000 trillion dollars in 1 trip.this channel gets way too many "facts" wrong.

    Indigenous people also know that you must give back to the land. You can't just harvest over and over without giving back.

    Ever see that episode of Futurama where they search for anchovies? All the foods we can't make in the lab will be like that. And in the far future, people will taste those food and think "why did people like this stuff"

    Uh, truffle plantations were so prolific prior to the Great War that truffles were considered peasant and animal food. Due to the devastation of the war (casualties, plantation neglect, worker loss, etc) and the subsequent Second World War a bare 20 years later truffle plantations (consisting of oak stands inoculated with the fungus - grown and harvested for both food and firewood) basically became a lost cause. All of these foods are farmable, but like trees (for firewood, building material, paper etc) they need to be managed over a long period of time as a resource, not just a cash crop. Managed wood lots (via coppicing or rotating harvest plots) have been a prime example of sustainable harvesting for a millennia at minimum. Tuna are probably the most problematic food on this list. But even they are a great case of managing stocks rather than outright farming. Creating restocking programs, encouraging feed fish numbers and, in an extreme situation, placing a moratorium on harvests for a set period would a see numbers jump back up to harvest-able levels in very little time (assuming no radical changes in the environment cause a cascade extinction in the tuna's food chain (i.e. die off of base food planktons or algaes then progresses on up to feeder fish and then tuna).

    France, Spain, and Italy have reforested considerably over the last 100 years. The truffle is going to be just fine. That's the funny thing about lying, even if you believe it's a white lie, once you get caught nobody wants to believe you. Supporters of climate change are routinely caught lying.

    Wouldn't it be possible to grow at least huckleberries in a climate controlled facility? It's not as if we don't have the means to produce massive facilities of such a nature.

    I remember reading about how bluefin tuna were so abundant a few decades ago people would commonly spot them in boats and even swim with them but once the US became obsessed with japan they were overfished so badly that the areas where they were commonly seen are now devoid of bluefin.

    The first Bluefin Tuna sale in Japan always goes for a ridiculous price, it’s kind of a tradition. The rest are still very expensive, but not nearly as much as that very first sale.

    We huckleberry hunt in the mountains here in Idaho, I go every year at various times in late summer and into early fall, I have the best luck at or above 2500 to 5500 feet and being a US Forest Service employee I'm able to get to places that most people can't, mainly due to the fact that I cruise timber all summer long and can get to places where there are no roads and I have keys to closed and gated roads. For us, huckleberry picking can be a reasonably profitable pass time while you're in the woods anyway and have containers at hand. This season huckleberries were worth $22.00 a gallon. Working in the forest year in and year out and, as I said before I have keys to closed and gated roads, you'll get to know the patterns of deer and elk migrations through out the year, consequently those of us who do hunt can fill our freezers with elk and venison every year. I know that it seems like I got off topic but the game will be where the berries are, where you find berries you'll find the game.

    humans are stupid. well, not the "native" but everyone else is stupid. farming tuna? get out of the ghetto, stop being a slave to old ideas like money... the entire world is 1 farm. our farm. until we stop letting people divide it up, make claims, and then set up their little get-rich operations, to pay tax, to hire big government, to drug you and enslave you... o.k.? stop making garbage, stop being selfish and entitled. clean out the ocean of your garbage... and then you have all the tuna you want. or else. God will end you all... permanently this time.
