I read this book again and I'm trying to decide if I should completely stop eating fish. It's a hard decision because I love fish & sushi :(  See more

BENEFITING: Oceana

Cassandra Priebe

THE STORY:

Hi.  I am Cassie and I want you to know that we need to stop so many of the big fish from getting fished out of the oceans too fast or we are going to make them extinct and destroy the ocean's eco-systems.

I read a great book called A World Without Fish.  You might want to read it too.  We are not acting sustainably by over-fishing and over-eating the wrong kinds of fish.  And we are exterminating the big fish right now like we killed off the buffalo.  We are doing this by eating too many large preditors like tuna, snapper, cod, marlin, or sharks.  The small fish species like coley, mackerel, dab, pouting, herring and sardines are not in danger because there aren't many big fish left to eat them.  So now we need to find ways to chose to eat the smaller fish and leave the ones at the top of the food chain off of our plate so they can rebuild their populations.

One BIG problem is that I LOVE sushi ! !  But I want to keep eating it forever so we need to make sure we can.  If you love sushi too, then please keep this file of the eat-or-avoid sushi in your mobile phone: http://tinyurl.com/5o54gn  If it looks like a blank webpage then click refresh on the browser. And if you have an Android or iPhone then you can download an app here to make it easier to figure out what is okay to eat: http://tinyurl.com/97v83m

I am finishing a goal to plant 5,000 trees to help clean the air and keep places for wild animals to live.  When I reach that goal I am going to focus on protecting the ocean species.  This is the organization I am giving all the money I raise to: http://oceana.org/en

I am building a recipe book of good ways to eat small fish.  If you have a recipe for small fish that kids like to eat, can you please email it to me?  My email is cassie4fish@gmail.com.

I will write more and post better photos of my creations as soon as I can.  My clay creations are gifts I sculpt to give to you when you donate to my fundraiser.  You can order earrings, necklace pendants, or figurines of anything you want.  But I am much better at sculpting animals than other things.

For now, you can learn more by listening to the video on the left.

I have dedicated my life to helping change the way people think about the planet.  I want people to change the way they do things so we do not deplete the earth and kill so many of its amazing and beautiful creatures.

I used to think one person cannot make a difference but now I think differently because I am one person and I am making a difference.  PLEASE see that if I can help change things then you can help change things.  I started this project when I was 9 years old.  Now I am 10 years old.

This FUNdraiser was so much fun!!! We put out 3 buckets and our guests decided what money they wanted to donate and which fund. We did this ocean fund, my trees fund, and my greener place fund. The trees fund was the most popular. We showed a 10 minute long youtube video from Trees for he Future before the movie began and most of the guests really watched and were interested to learn more about why trees are so important!!! 4 years ago
