Can't eat it, too?
Your hypocrisy is so thick you could cut it with the same knife used to bone your fish. You devote the better part of the issue to all that is wrong with the mass killing of wild fish species, then devote a page and a pullout to advising your readers which fish they should eat ["Navigating the Catch of the Day"]. For the taste offish flesh, or perhaps the unwillingness to challenge the ecocidal habits of so many of your readers, you just can't seem to find the voice to support a meaningful end to the destruction of the marine environment.
On a planet where only the relatively rich are free to choose the "catch of the day," Mother Jones could better advocate for a truly sustainable lifestyle, including a plant-based diet.
