NAMAZU ON SPORT FISHING FOR MAN SIZED FISH
American Admiralty Books Safety & Privacy Policies EU VISITORS WARNING POSSIBLE COOKIES AHEADThe Great Namazu, former ancient Japanese giant catfish demigod in charge of coastal earth quakes, tidal waves and storms, former music album cover model, 3,000 year old legend, one time movie star, and subject of many paintings down through the ages. Namazu is now our senior maritime analyst.
We asked the Great Namazu what he thought about the giant sturgeon (884 pounds) caught in Canada recently and the controversy over the "Chilean Sea Bass" AKA "Antarctic Tooth Fish" controversy. The Antarctic Tooth Fish can grow to be over 100 pounds if it lives long enough. Namazu who appears in many forms is said to be roughly the size of Japan in his natural state at home at the bottom of the sea of Japan. We thought he might have some profound comments or insights on these two recent events. So a staffer interviewed him over the hydro phones. The transcript is below:
AAB: Ummm..your supreme catfishness sir, the staff has linked to a couple of recent stories that we thought you might have some unique insight on and we were hoping for a quotable comment.
NAMAZU: Ok Jimmy Olson what are the stories?
AAB: Well one is about a human father son team landing then releasing a 884 pound sturgeon. The other story has now gone through several postings and involves a boycott by U.S. Chefs of the Antarctic Toothfish, which was being marketed in the U.S. under the name of "Chilean Sea Bass". The Chefs don't want to offer the species anymore because they think the U.S. supply had been coming from two non sustainable fish populations. If you hook up to your hydro fax I can fax you the copy if you think you'd like to comment or editorialize.
NAMAZU : Won't be necessary kid
AAB: So...Sir does that mean you will comment?
AAB: Uh sir when might we expect your comment or editorial.
NAMAZU: Right now kid , you ready to copy?
AAB: Yes Sir!
NAMAZU: OK here it is......EAT MORE CHICKEN! (Click)
