Re: eating raw????
Problem is that bluefin tuna arent cute enough. If they were as cute and cuddly looking as a seal pup, a panda, or even the "majestic" whale, there'd be a little more outcry amongst the bleeding heart groups du jour.
Then again, its Japan. I dont expect much outcry against them. They put the Kyo in Kyoto, afterall.
