Troubled Waters…

April 13, 2010

A growing concern of mine is the population of Echizen Jellyfish in the Sea of Japan. This particular jellyfish is generally refered to as the giant jellyfish. The giant jellyfish can grow up to 660lbs and reach a diameter of over 6ft. The recent growth of the population just off the western coast of Japan has become a big problem for local fishermen. Nets are breaking, boats are sinking, and fishermen are failing to bring in their catch. This poses a huge problem for the people of Japan. The people of Japan need to eat, and fish is a primary source of food for the islanders. If the economy of Japan begins to faulter everything we know will do the same.

You might ask, “How does Japan’s fishing economy affect my American lifestyle?’

Japan is the foundation upon which the great instituiton (the US) was built. Who will mass produce all of our electronic goods? Who will create animated television content for children and adults? What culture will young adults with seemingly no social life be obsessed with? Japan has given the US so many things to be thankful for. From falling in love with Anime body pillows to dressing up as your favorite preteen cartoon character for fun, Japan is behind it all. NOT TO MENTION, amazing martial arts cinema. We rely on Japan in a major way to live our daily lives. So what can be done? We must rise to the occasion and face the challenge that the giant jellyfish pose to us. We will not stand for this atrocity! How do we do it? Simple

Nuke the ocean.

    Jellyfish scare the poop out of me. Even the tiny ones.
    But I feel I must muster my courage, and with a samurai spirit confront the evil until there base are belong to us.
    Maku Mozo!

    Koreans eat jellyfish though. They have jellyfish salad.

      True enough, but there aren’t enough Koreans for that much salad. I’m just saying…if they made a Discovery Channel special about the issue…I’m up in arms. Thanks for the comment!
