Kev, I am both shocked and dismayed!!! You could put some hot sauce on it. Now doesn't this look good!?!?? (Wish I liked spicey food.)

Avenue Food

heh.. actually I only mentioned I tried those foods. Not that I actually liked them. :) Errrr.. at least I am pretty sure I didn't. :p

I think if I am to try ANY kind of seafood it would be (oh no! here comes the bad spelling) halibet. I hear thats the best. Funny that they also tend to be one of the weirdest things in the sea.

Sincerely,

If it is some sort of fear/phobia you really are missing out on some great food and I suggest you take tiny steps and start trying things. If you've eaten gator, reindeer, squid, etc. all you just said is invalid and you are just doing yourself an injustice by pinning this fear on seafood! Unless you were once a chew-toy for a whale then seafood has never done anything to you to make you fear it
HEH.. funny post. I do remember when I was young feeling really bad for Jonah when he was swallowed by the whale. Not sure if that has a connection. No scares at least and it might have been so tramatic that I have succussfully pushed that experience deep.

Sincerely,

Kevin in Alaska

As you can eat meat which has no appearance of the animal, how about fish prepared likewise, say a salmon filet or halibut filet...a nice square of fish, no bone or life shape about it?? Just wondering.
Also very funny post. Thats my problem. I am so sadistic that I eat life forms that have NO chance of saving themselves. heh

Actually though the only problem I have with eatting animals 'besides the fact' the fact that I might not like flavor, texture etc... is when an animal is in danger of becomeing extinct (spelling?) that would be my moral issue besides making sure they are killed humanly.

I do agree that animals and plant life is bascilly a resource either given to us 'OR' thought as part of the food chain. Either view works for me.

I live in the interior of Alaska. Put your finger to the right of center and you will probably squish me on the map!

Then is it just the fear that you may not like it that keeps you from trying it?

So I have explained my statements. Where did you get what YOU said?
Well for the good of all arguments... most of us but mostly be are not professional writters. So sense there is no tone of voice or facial expressions to help besides these silly yellow faces, its easy to type something wrong or read some wrong etc etc etc.

Wait!!! I don't do anything wrong!

Scientists have came out and said (on BBC news, Science Weekly, & more) that natural sea life has only about 50 more years of existance left! SO don't let fear of extinction scare ya! I'm eating whatever I can while I still can!

Naw im serious doggie. No need for panic fish farms will stay in biz. I just like the way the sea effects the taste of them fishies, and want to enjoy it before they can no longer survive in their natural environment like so many other species.

99% of all life that has ever existed on this planet is extinct.

Well, nobody says you have to eat fish, or seafood or whatever.
You don't want to then don't!
In a way I think I understand, although there are only 2 things I won't, can't eat:
raisins and raw oysters.
Other then those I would (and did) eat anything. And am happy to say so far didn't hate any food I tried.

So, don't worry, eat what you want and forget the rest.
