Guardian Unlimited | Comment is free | George Monbiot: Mass medication with Omega 3 would wipe out global fish stocks

There's a meaty (or should I say 'fishy') article here Guardian Unlimited Comment is free George Monbiot: Mass medication with Omega 3 would wipe out global fish stocks The article starts with a very credible discussion of the value of Omega 3 fatty acids and their apparent benefits. Further on the article addresses the impossibility of sustaining a supply and how mismanagement of fish stock is leading to serious problems. There's an interesting development via a Swiss firm which apparently is farming a variety of algae which produces the Omega 3 acids and is actually the original source for the acids which we are now getting from fish. It's an article worth reading.

George Monbiot, smombiot.
Rent a rant.
(I speak as neither a lefty or a righty, just a person who values facts and reasoned argument!)
