The Eating Habits of Humans

As an adendum to Kottke’s post about the disappearing bluefin tuna, to me the more interesting point was this:

Humans have primarily selected four mammals (cows, pigs, sheep and goats) and four birds (chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese) to utilize for food, and are now in the process of choosing four fish (cod, salmon, tuna, and bass).

The article was written by Paul Greenberg, author of the upcoming book, Four Fish.  Which is, ostensibly about the pull quote above.
