it goes straight to Asia where it is used for sushi.

there is a very detrimental connection to our waters though, please check out this link:

you will see that literally millions of pounds of OUR sardines are extracted and sent overseas to be used primarialy in two industries, one of them being the feeding of the penned bluefin in australia, the other for longline bait in asia.

Either way, we are exporting OUR vital forage and a handfull of fishers and brokers are getting rich.

we all share the loss, but do we share the profit??????
