Thefish are known by a number of other names, including blue grenadiers, blue hake, whiptails,whiptail hake, and New Zealand whiting. The fish have dense white flesh that is rich in omega-3acids, making it a good dietary choice. Studies have also suggested that this type of fish is areasonably environmentally sustainable choice for consumers who are concerned about fisherymanagement.The fish tend to live in the middle depths of the water, and they feed on small crustaceans.Larger fish species as well as humans find hoki quite acceptable food, but the fish reproduce inlarge numbers, so the population stays relatively stable. They also mature very rapidly, growingto a size of up to 47 inches (120 centimeters). These factors were considered when the hokifishery was evaluated for sustainability, along with other issues like fishing techniques andaccepted practices on fishing boats.In appearance, the fish have long wedge shaped bodies that become narrower at the tail, withslim fins and a blue-green to silver color pattern. Their eyes are quite large, and the fish alsohave the classic protruding jaw associated with many hake and cod. The large eyes make the fishappear perpetually startled, and they are probably quite useful in the murky waters that the fishfavor. The scientific name for the fish is Macruronus novazelandiae.AdChoices Every Pound Lost Is A Positive Step Choose S-recipes™ For QuickWeight Loss Made Easy.

Register Now...Fast www.LoseWeightNow.com.myIn New Zealand, hoki comprise the largest commercial fish species. Because of the high volumeof catch, the fishery is closely monitored to ensure that the fish are not being excessivelyexploited. Although the population appears to be stable, some concerns have been raised aboutbycatch and dumping related to the industry. By aggressively managing the fishery, the NewZealand government hopes to keep them sustainable and economically viable, though severalinternational agencies have raised concerns about hokis sustainability.This fish is typically available frozen, as it does not keep well otherwise. It can be used incooking just like hake or cod would be. The dense flesh holds up very well to saute and grilling,and it may also be baked or steamed. The flavor is mild and slightly sweet and will pair well witha wide assortment of sauces and vegetables.AdChoices Quality seafood supplier in SG.

It doesnt make any difference and if you follow closely the teachings of a religion to the point of rejecting certain foods because you think it stops you from getting to heaven, then youre not living your life. Youre simply waiting to die. --Martin R. @WilliB: "Who gets to decide which God is right?" You do, actually. Its up to you to decide. but the preceding step is probably something along the lines of why should you care if there is a God or not. The answer to that question is the same as if you sought to answer: "Where did we come from and why?" The Big Bang theory is progressing further and further but too many scientistsanon144200 avoid asking why it happened, and instead focus on how.Post 58 We can trace back the big bang phenomenon as far as we can possibly imagine however it still doesnt answer why. If I said "God did it" most peoples first response is who made God then? Perfectly logical if you ignore God to be a being that has always existed. So wheres the middle of infinity? People will bring up reasons to why they should not believe/do not have to believe
  5. 5. in a God such as "if God is such a loving God, why would he let xyz happen?" I have never met a person who has asked this and sought out to answer it for themselves. they only ask it to convince themselves in poor deductive logic that they need not believe in any God. I cant convince you that my God is the right God for the same reason that I cant describe what red looks like to person who has never seen it before. We are all after the same thing really: the truth about where we came from, why and where we are going. Essentially you only have two choices; to believe in something, or believe in nothing (Nihilism). Whoever does or does not eat kosher is not immortal or is not spared from aging oranon132165 ailments so if you like something, eat it. but just do it in limits and you will die aPost 57 peaceful death.Related FisheryTopics Filets @anon44805: Do you think the Hindu gods agree with your statement that cows areWilliB "made of steak"?Post 56 Who gets to decide which God is right?

To anon69728 who thinks he understands the atheists thought process, you are completely wrong. Unlike religious people, our beliefs are truly our own and not influenced by others the way yours are.

Interesting how many atheists base their beliefs on someone they never met. They never met any of the people who claim something is true/not true according toanon69728 God/the Bible and base their whole non-belief system on a fallible human.Post 44 Christians base their belief system on an infallible God. (And some christians are very fallible and that is why we need a savior who died on the cross to pay for our sins!) And if there is not a God, nor heaven/hell and we all go to the same nothingness
  7. 7. when we die, then what does it matter what you believe while alive? Hitler and an innocent child dying at birth all go to the same nothingness. An atheist cannot even say I told you so if he is right, but, if there is a God and heaven and hell, then the Christian can say "I told ya so!", though not happily as it will be too late for the atheist after death.

Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to controlanon44939 ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unablePost 21 to control other habits such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, unrighteous hatred/anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife.

  9. 9. Scale fish is safer than skin fish because the skin fish was created to be a scavenger to clean the ocean. God is the creator and He knows whats the best for us. If you are the creator of a machine that can be fueled by gasoline, is it okay if others put aanon44841 diesel or different kind of fuel in it? if its fuel is gasoline then put gasoline, if itsPost 19 fuel is diesel then put diesel. God give us the scale fish not the skin fish. not everything you can eat is food, you can eat rat killer bait but it can cause you to poisoned. Well, I am glad to have learned that Hoki reproduce in large numbers *and* mature quickly. If a fishing moratorium were placed on this species, it would be short lived. Unfortunately while the population regenerated (exponentially, mind you) mass fishing for less regenerative species would be required.anon44822 With regard to you devout/orthodox religious souls, let me say that while IPost 18 commend your personal devotion, please refrain from using this forum as a tool to propagate your personal opinion, and yes religion is a personal opinion/belief. I hold my own beliefs, and will not look down on others because they dont *act* according to my *opinion*.anon44817 Is there something wrong with me if I think "skin fish" sounds like a euphemism forPost 16 something else?Related FisheryTopics Filets i think that all you who are worried about skin fish or scale fish -- a fish is a fish. look-- i live in southern louisiana and we eat both skin and scale. we eat red fishanon44812 that is a scale fish and we eat cat fish that is a skin fish. this is to all of yall who eatPost 15 tuna --that is a skin fish -- or salmon or even ling -- they are all skin fish. so yall need to not worry. you wont get hurt if you eat a skin fish because 90 percent of the fish you eat in restaurants is skin fish. If God didnt want us to eat cows, He wouldnt have made them out of steak. If Godanon44805 didnt want us to eat hoki, He wouldnt have made them out of McDonalds Filet-O-Post 14 Fish! No one questions the wisdom of a parent when they tell their children to not touch the hot stove yet we love to doubt the validity of God telling us that somethings are harmful to us and we would be better off going without. There are poisonous mushrooms that look similar to good ones yet the difference is life and death. "Garbage in-garbage out" is universally acknowledged fact in regards to computers, and "you are what you eat" is widely recognized as worthwhile wisdom foranon44795 humans. Scavengers are the earths wastebasket and sewer processing plants. I dontPost 12 eat out of my sewer nor do I eat the animals that eat that stuff either. Cows have like four stomachs while chickens have a gizzard. Some animals have healthier menus and are healthier on the menu while the animals that God has declared "clean" to eat invariably have biological features that aid in their being better for us. God loves us and wants us to be happy; oddly enough He somehow thinks that wed be happier if we were healthier. What do you think?Related FisheryTopics Filets
