Dear Andrew Zimmerman

Bizarre Foods Guy,

You are not Hawaiian.  If you were Hawaiian I would have had way less of a problem with you macking on some bonefish.  However, you aren’t.  Around the world bonefish are worth far, far more alive than dead.  Bonefish are a source of income to a small fleet of boats and small numbers of fly fishing guides but the money spent by anglers who travel the world in search of bonefish is substantial.  Other folks have figured this out and bonefish are now illegal to kill in places like the Bahamas and Belize.  Sure, there are people around the world with a cultural heritage of eating bonefish, but, dude, that isn’t your heritage.  Don’t eat bonefish.

Seriously?  Don’t eat bonefish.

  1. so…. you’re mad because he ate some fish that someone served him. right?

    I guess the native that served the food didn’t need the money?

  2. A bonefish is worth more alive than dead. Feel free to disagree.
