Associate Professor, Rutgers University
The Guys started the show by talking about canned tuna. Not the starkist "5 pack bags" (one for every day of the week -- if you are fasting on weekends) but rather delicious Ventresca Tuna, made from the under belly of the tuna. This canned delicacy is popular in Italy and Spain.
The Guys also welcome Oscar Schofield, Associate Professor of Marine Biology at Rutgers University to talk about the impact of Hurricane Katrina on the fishing industry and the gulf coast environment. The Gulf Region which supplies 25% of the nation's seafood, lost 40% of its fishing boats and suffered an estimated $2.6 billion loss. Oscar spoke of the devastation to much of the seafood and fish in the area, especially in Lake Pontchartrain. The Guys also discussed the "Mississippi Plume of Death".
