Reef is a complicated environment

Dear A.M. Costa Rica:

I doubt we could farm parrot fish. The reef is a complicated environment that would be impossible to replicate.  Existing fish farms are really problematic too: pollution, disease, sustainability, and unless fed other fish, aren’t great for flavor or omega 3.

As wild fish disappear, get ready for a less fishy future, with fish served as a treat, or in small amounts to flavor other dishes. Considering
the price of fish now, that future seems to be here now.
