You definitely don't want to look up the same subject on YouTube then!

 

Now you know you will have to, won't you?

 

Of course! Several to choose from, too... :blink:

The problem with promoting the eating of course fish(especially on the World web) is people who've never even considerd eating course fish will have a go just for the hell of it and they may well be in their thousands. Also any immigrants looking in will just go for it all the more if they see UK anglers promoting/condoning it. Ok if you eat the occasional fish so be it but don't spout about how good it is on the internet.

 

My sentiments, I really cannot understand these on here that in this day and age promote the eating of coarse fish, it really is beyond me. In all my tears of Angling I have never met anyone who admits to doing so either, let alone promote the idea on a site such as this. i have seen the odd brummie take eels home in a bucket from the Severn, but thats about it. i have as a kid taken the odd brown trout from my local River Chew, but most grow out of the feeling of ownership of ones catch and prefer the catch and release route.

 

After all CATCH AND RELEASE is touted throughout the angling world as the way ahead. So why on here are a few that lag behind the common sense approach

is beyond me, it really is. i am certain yes 100% certain that my and Tiggers views are those of the majority of Angling, and for that I am content that are fish stocks will survive despite the rest of you and the EE threat.

The choice of screen name 'Rabbit' perhaps an apt one in these 'eat/don't eat' debates. Rabbit has of course long featured on the wild food menu, however Rabbit offers very little if any nutritional value to humans, indeed one would(and people have) starve to death trying to live on what Rabbit has to offer.

 

rabbit rabbit rabbit to talk talk talk nothing more nothing less, and i do not eat rodents or coarse fish either :)

I've often thought about going out hunting for rabbits but, 1 - i'm not sure I could pull the trigger, 2 - i'd be afraid of killing a rabbit that has baby bunnies to look after that would starve to death if I ate their mother and 3 - there is a lot of desease in them. In fact that is a very important fact, if you are going to eat wild food i.e rabbits and coarse fish, they have not been reared under guidelines for eating...pigs used to have worms that live inside you but they don't anymore because they are monitored etc, you could eat pork raw now. You may get all sorts of worms, desease etc from coarse fish and wild food that isn't monitored.

 

This is possibly my favourite post ever, if you're not able to tell healthy meat from diseased (whether wild or farmed) then you should stick to pot noodles.

 

Oh and don't eat raw pork it still has the potential give you a sore tummy, it is true though that you don't need to worry so much about under cooking it now, an internal temperature of 65 degrees will kill owt nasty that lives inside.

I shoot and eat Rabbits, Pigeons, Pheasant, Partridge, Duck, Goose, Roe deer and Red deer.

I take and eat the occasional Trout, Salmon, Pike and Perch. I used to take eels but not at the moment.

I catch and enjoy eating Cod, Haddock and Mackerel from the sea.

I think that all of the above are sustainable, at least where I live.

I like to know where my food comes from.

I do not eat intensively reared and badly slaughtered farm animals and I only buy free range eggs and chicken from the farm.

I do not believe that intensive farming practice as currently carried on is sustainable and it should not be supported.

Almost all of my friends and acquaintances feel the same way.

Thankfully 99.9% of the folk in this country don't want to and wouldn't know how to, so that's OK then and if our Eastern European cousins come up here to try it the keepers will get them. :)

Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.

so i should give up eating sea fish as well then? unless you know a way in which they have been "monitored"

we should all be living courtesy of tescos ready meals by your argument!lol

Most farmers that shoot them for pest control will actively seek out the Rabbits carrying young to keep the numbers down.

 

What they do a pregnancy test before they shoot them do they?

That about sums up how I see things too, apart from the rabbits, I gave them up for no other reason than once we ate so many we bacame sick of them and they remind me of being broke. (with a lurcher and a couple of ferrets they are cheaper than the 'economy' gunk which is marketed as food in cut-price supermarkets. It been over 10 years since I shot a 'Red', I return any salmon taken and I too have noticed a dramatic reduction in Eels and so decline to kill 'em too.

 

We have keepers who would employ the 'fence post/broken leg deterrent too. Many be we have a regional difference thing going on here. or a rural v urban mentality one? and I see that as a state of mind rather than one of absolute geography

If anyone wishes, take and eat as many fish as your licence allows you to. IMO, as long as there are people who wish to take fish for the pot, legally, we will always retain the right to fish for reasons other than sport. I would always suggest that people refrain from eating specimen fish though.

If you've got four or five Rabbits in sight with a half decent scope and one of them is heavily or even reasonably pregnant it's fairly obvious to spot which one that is, it's possible to tell with the naked eye too at close range. Rabbits breed all year these days and with a pretty fast gestation period it's quite possible to spend your time shooting the ones carrying young if you've got crops or a smallholding to protect..
