Oh, the music in the air!
An' the joy that's ivrywhere --
Shure, the whole blue vault of heaven is wan grand triumphal arch,
An' the earth below is gay
Wid its tender green th'-day,
Fur the whole world is Irish on the Seventeenth o' March!

The Joy of Cooking with Fish Heads

Eat them up yum!

With increasing sales in aquaculture, the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization is working to make sure that small-scale fisherman and artisanal fish farmers also benefit from the economic growth. One idea is to actively market fish by-producsts, such as fish heads, fish bones and viscera.


Audun Lem, Chief of FAO’s Products, Trade and Marketing Branch stated, "We must ensure that these by-products are not wasted from an economic but also a nutritional point of view. By-products often have a higher nutritional value than fillets, particularly in terms of essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, and can constitute an excellent means of combating micronutrient deficiencies in developing countries."

Blue Whale v. Pod of Orcas

Video footage from the Monterey Bay Whale Watch shows what appears to be a pod of orcas attacking a lone blue whale. Someone representing the company wrote on their Facebook page,
The BLUE WHALE TAIL THROWS, blood flying off of its bitten right fluke tip, after its encounter with six killer whales. The blue whale immediately dove and sped away, popping up 1/4 mile away and then 1/2 mile away; the killer whales did not pursue it. This may be the first time such an encounter between these two species has been filmed in California!
