PAYBACK MOTHERFISHERS

(2016-2048)

WORLDWIDE, IN 2016, ABOUT 2.6 BILLION PEOPLE SUBSIT ON FISH.

According to an international study, there will be no more fish or seafood left by 2048.

WTF !?

(what the fish)

 

GET THE WHOLE STORY BELOW SEA LEVEL !

After all, my uncle is a Pisces.

FISH OFF!

I'm just here for the seaweed, guys.

À LA CARTE

Ahoy!

You might be a bit fished off, because someone has promised you free sushi and now instead you have to read lecturing cards in envelopes.

So would I.

After all, the idea for this installation arose while enjoying an exceptional salmon negiri in a most satisfactory sushi restaurant.

Have no fear.

I DON'T ESPECIALLY CARE FOR VEGANS, NOR DO I FIND IT ESPECIALLY HEROIC TO RISK ONE'S LIFE HARAKIRIWISE BY TRYING TO SINK A JAPANESE SUSHI BOAT IN THE NAME OF NATURE. AFTER ALL, LIFE IS PART OF NATURE. SO ARE INSIDE OUT CALIFORNIA ROLLS.

I hate "Finding Nemo" (Maybe not hate but I love "Monster Inc" as much as I hate "Finding Nemo").

"Frozen" was a pile of crap, too.

My name is Michaël Reinhold and I too used to invite girls out for sushi, in order to transform an unenjoyable date into a more or less digestible rendez-vous.

Today it's my girlfriend whom I invite out once a week to the conveyer belt.

Actually, she's the one who invites me out mostly since I'm a poor art student.

If I were to collect donations for a nonprofit organization, I would spend most of the money for sushi.

Or sashimi.

First sushi, then morals.

You know, tons of people like sushi.

And tons of people depend on sushi.

Worldwide, about 2.6 billion people, especially in coastal regions subsist on fish. (sorry for getting didactic)

Fish covers 50 -80% of the need for animal protein in West Africa.

So if a whole lot of people love negiris as much as a whole lot of people depend on negiris, the negiri mothers have no more time to raise negiri babies. (Because there are no more negiri babies to raise).

Oversushifishing describes the excessive decimation of the fish population in bodies of water through oversushifishing.

Oversushifishing exists when more fish are fished than can multiply through natural breading or immigration*. *With the exception of Rainbowfish and Dorie

A collapse of the fish population not only will have an effect on the ocean's eco system but also a dramatic impact on the sushi supply to a large part of the population of West Africa and Asia. (It's a lot of text sorry. Please keep in mind I had to translate it).

Especially hurt are Bangladesh, Cambodia, Equatorial Guinea, Gambia, Ghana, Indonesia and Sierra Leone.

The reasons for oversushifishing lie mainly in the economic interests and the great worldwide hunger for sushi (mmmmh sushi) by ignoramuses like you and me. (vegans may skip this one or start thinking about plants gossiping about global warming with each other).

The population of the large food and predatory fish such as tuna, sword fish and shark has decreased by 90 percent since the 60's.

The decimation of the great white shark lies mainly in illegal shark fights in Mexico.

Just kidding, but according to estimates, two fifths of the worldwide sushi caught with a market value of 23.5 billion dollars is illegally fished and a bluefin tuna's value is about 100.000 $ on the fish market.

Commercial oversushifishing threatens the whole marine eco system.

The great makis of this world say farewell.

According to a study by an international research team (really intelligent people) at the Canadian Dallhouse (mmmh grizzly bear sushi) University in Halifax, there will be no more food fish and seafood left by 2048.

Already in 2013 NASA discovered water on Mars.

Some German wordplay. (For fine fresh Phil, phone fish.)

What I really want to say is: I do on to negiris as I would have them to do to me.

I think there's also a story about Jesus and sushi and stuff.

Free Sushi

Free Sushi

An Ode to Fish A fish is like a fish. I'm high and haven't ordered sushi.
