From The Wall Street Journal, March 22

In the latest issue of its annual Fisheries White Paper, the government warned about the negative implications of children's dislike of fish, pointing out that DHA and EPA, substances found in fatty fish, are essential to brain development. Without having to delicately remove bones, children are not learning chopstick dexterity, the agency said.

One trade group has turned to a rock band called Gyoko, or Fishing Port. "Our mission is to bring back fish to the Japanese table," Tsurizao Morita, the vocalist and "captain" of the band says regularly.

In concerts, Mr. Morita, a former tuna fisherman, walks onto the stage wearing a real tuna head. He then slices it into edible pieces, while swinging a gleaming fisherman's knife.

Gyoko's first single, titled "Maguro," which means tuna, was followed by another called "Katsuo," or "Bonito."

Gyoko became the nation's first rock band to hold a press conference at the Fisheries Agency when it released a song called "Fish Heaven" in 2008. That's a tune now heard in supermarkets all over Japan: "Fish. Fish. Fish. You get smart when you eat fish. Smart Smart Smart. Fish Fish Fish. You get healthy when you eat fish. Healthy. Healthy. Healthy."

Not nearly as much as I'd like to.

I fish for compliments continuously. Shameful but true.

I used to love fishing, but I couldn't continue after gut-hooking the last sunfish I caught. On the rare occasions I fish now it's with artificials, and my wife doesn't know how to use artificials, so we just don't go.

Back in the day I hauled in a six foot long tarpon on 30 pound test braided, fishing off a bank, thanks to local boater that came and took me on board to chase the fish across the Caloosahatchee. It had scales as big as the body of the sunfish that made me quit fishing.

Caught my limit of crappie at Hillsdale this morning. Sometimes two at a time with a two-hook Kansas style Alabama rig. Fish love those things.

I fish all the time. I'm fishing for ideas and answers. I fish for fish sometimes too. More often than not we catch a little sumpin sumpin to put in the frying pan. And I remember one time I went fishing a little too much...I caught hell.

We have been slaying crappie at Hillsdale the last 2 weeks. Nice big ones 10-15 inches

My buddy's buddies went alligator hunting. Story has it one of the critters lunged mostly in the boat & caused some chaos for a bit. They claimed it was big enough for a whole set of Samsonite. It'd been funner to go rock hunting in Cabo.

Last time I went fishing, my oldest son fell in the lake - it was the funniest thing ever! I love fishing with my boys, ages 5 and 7. It can be stressful, but in a couple more years...they'll think we're just fishin! It's an awesome way to get your kids to sit and talk with you.

I'd venture to say that the majority of Lawrence dose not hunt regularly either as recreation, they need rec-centers with, basketball courts, pools and spas to send their ADHD kids to. I catch fish :P. Honestly if more people were on the lakes with boats, the minority of us regulars would have to quit and find something else to do, due to over crowding on the lakes and ramps. Even with a lake the size of Clinton, 7000 acres, people still want huddle together to fish the most productive small hot spots. I envision the lakes looking like a packed parking lot of boats, like on Perry lake previous nights of 4th of July. I attended one of those... once....but will never again.

Seriously, the most often they could put was "weekly"?

Well, my neighbor put a skiff in my pond, although I don't know why because two or three good strokes with the oar & you're running aground on the other side. Anyway, he said out there in the middle, the bluegill & perch were lined up about eight deep waiting for their turn at the hook. So, no, I don't fish it much. The other neighbor's grandkid caught what he claimed was a nine pound bass. There are some big catfish in there, too. The last time I swam in there, half a perch come flying through the air, the other half still in the snapper's mouth. And that's why it's the last time I swam in there. Thuja, the herons fish there, all stabby like. It's very cool, but they can be wasteful. I haven't heard one screech.

Maybe the question should be, how often do you catch fish?
