Quotes

...This is only tuna fishery in the world that grants dolphin kill quotas to its vessels. "Mexican tuna has never been certified as sustainable by any of the leading certification groups, including Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Friend of the Sea" concluded EII director
...thousands of acres of the rarest and most important wildlife habitat on our national forests in order to pad their own budget," said Hanson. "What the Forest Service is doing here is every bit as ecologically destructive as clearcutting thousands of acres of old-growth forest."
...They've remixed Katy Perry, 30 Seconds to Mars, Cobra Starship, topping club and sales charts worldwide ( "The Way We See The World' charted at number 1 in the Beatport electro charts).

The sound is loud, dirty, which has won them respect from the most serious music lovers. They rocked Lolopolooza, Tokyo, and Sydney opened for will.i.am in Ibiza, Afrojack and David Guetta, played alongside Pete Tong, Luciano, Sharam, Avicii - and dropped in on Richard Branson at Necker for a Halloween party with the Victoria Secrets models. $20.00 - $25."
"This was a 45-minute haul," he said, smiling. "This is one of the best catches I've ever had in my life. The last time I caught shrimp like this, I ran out of ice." There were 368 boats in the water on opening day, the most since June 2005, said Rick Burris, director of the Shrimp and Crab Bureau...
