Four Fish Algeria Morocco Tunisia Libya


Salmon,Tuna,Bass,Cod The fish we all love.

The most popular “fishs” in the sea already over fished. Wild populations of these fish are being depleted. New solutions need to be found. Should fish be hunted or should they be herded or should they be farmed.

These questions are especially important to North Africa because right now they are developing “industrial” fishing boats and they have an increased appetite for the protein and calories of fish.

In order to domesticate fish and other animals, those animals need to be

1. hardy

2. endowed with an inborn liking for man

3. comfort-loving

4. able to breed freely

5. needful of only a minimal amount of tending

yet most of these fish that we love cannot be easily farmed for one thing there mating seasons are very complex some fish will ram against the glass or not eat, there offspring are very microscopic and require rotifers to eat then Artemia “sea monkeys” when they are a little bit larger. Since most of these fish are carnivores most of them eat more than they produce by a factor of 5 to 1

Algeria Morocco Tunisia and Libya need to be mindful to not repeat others mistakes.

Do no harm, do not let bottom scrapers industrial fish to fish in their waters.

And if they want to farm fish, pick fish that are hardy and are vegetarians like asian sea bass or tilapia or Basa

just something to think about.

  1. Great article. Very good points. The North African coast has been over-fished from Japanese companies for years.

    • that is true basically international law is very hard to enforce, the status quo is that there is endless amounts of fish in the sea.
      Also Cod bass salmon and tuna can be “farmed” but at an ecological loss to the enviroment
