Another suitably dolphin-inspired vessel
On a more serious note, I liked to think that most of the tuna that we consume nowadays was "dolphin-friendly". And that everyone, from the fishermen, through the food companies down to the consumer were finally behaving responsibly. And then I read this article
in the current issue of the Economist. All I can suggest is that we humans, for all our inventiveness and apparent ability to find solutions to problems, are as close to truly solving the problems as Jon Stewart is with his "Daily Show":
PS. Whilst the "dolphin-inspired" water-toy Brian shows appears to be a great idea, it has similarly not been "fully thought through". Anything like it should only be used in a closed and controlled-environment in my opinion, preferably developed as a ride in some amusement waterpark and guided by rails. Certainly not
for use in open waters, where it would appear to pose an important hazard to its occupants in addition to any others sharing the same waters (whether they be other marine mammals, fish or humans)...
PPS. Sorry for the thread-drift...?!
