I thought you might enjoy this piece from the Observer (UK):


GREENPEACE HAVE ACCUSED Malcolm Glazer’s ‘fish product’ company Omega Protein of damaging the marine environment along America’s eastern seaboard by overfishing Chesapeake Bay. Omega Protein’s total revenues last year: $120m.

$120m: the amount Simpson’s plutocrat Montgomery Burns made by ‘fishing the oceans dry’ to produce ‘Lil Lisa’s Patented Animal Slurry’; ‘A protein-based animal feed, insulation for low-income housing, a high explosive and engine coolant – made from 100 per cent recycled animals.’
