at least they're abundant.........you hate to see them dead, but it's hilarious how much we pay for rhoms just because we have none. do you realize what kind of rhoms you could get if it weren't for shipping and cost and fish mortality in transit? like if you lived in SA and could just put the word out locally that you'd buy the biggest one anyone caught. you'd have a fifteen incher in no time for like fifty bucks! it's like us walking down to a pond and selling acouple of bass to them. i don't get all huffy when i fish and eat what i catch so i'm not going to get heated over the locals using them for food etc. and killing them. it's just how life is. i wish i could capture and export squirrels or something.
