How Not to Do it - Fishing with Grenades

It's long been a standing joke that the best way to catch lots of fish is with a stick of TNT, but is it really?

There's no doubt that an explosion will kill fish, but here are a couple of Russian fishermen who show us that its a bad idea to use a granade to catch fish, and not just because it's illegal!

We just had to share this great photo sent in to us by one of our readers. Fantastic display of good old Aussie initiative and a great way to get out past the breakers when surf fishing.

Frozen Fish Anyone?

Here's a new take on fish in aquariums!  Online news outlet CNET recently reported on the Kori no Suizokukan (Ice Aquarium) in Kesennuma, northeastern Japan, which packs about 450 specimens of marine life frozen in large columns of ice bathed in blue light. Visitors are able to see 80 fish species (all frozen) including saury, octopuses, crabs, and skipjack,

Opened to the public in 2002 in a japanese seafood market, the Ice Aquarium uses flash-freezing technology to preserve fresh fish unloaded in Kesennuma's port on the Pacific Ocean. Inside, the ambient air is a cool minus minus 20 C, and guests have to don parkas to keep warm!
