The blue culture blog
Imagine if the fish you ate was produced in a way that actually improved the environment, not just sustained it. But actually brought it back to a healthier and more abundant state than it was for previous generations.
In order to answer that question, we should first define sustainability. The term ‘sustainable’ is commonly and loosely used to define practices that don’t degrade the physical and natural environment to the point that it diminishes its longevity.
Fish has a cultural relevance in many different cultural celebrations around the world. In China, eating fish during the Lunar New Year is an important specialty. The Lunar New Year occurs on the first day of the Lunar calendar and the next new year will occur on February 12th, 2021. Eating fish is considered good luck since the Chinese word for “fish” (鱼 Yú /yoo) sounds like the word for “extra” (余 Yú /yoo). It is good fortune to have extra at the end of the year as this means you are taking this surplus into the following year. It is also thought that consuming fish will allow you to have “extra” prospects such as wealth, health, love and family, in the next year.
