Why is it that we eat foods made of "fish" without noting what species are the source of this food? We don't eat "fowl sticks" or "mammal burgers"; why is fish the undifferentiated food source from the sea? Whenever I see "fish" as an ingredient I now think of the scene from The Old Man and the Lisa episode of the Simpsons where a drag net (made of 6-pack plastic rings) pulls every form of sea life out of the water and into an enormous grinder, producing a slurry of food protein. Num. A year or so ago I adopted a self-imposed dietary restriction to not eat food for which I don't know the specific name. I haven't much missed those fishwiches since then.
