Fisherman Survives Thirteen Months Adrift At Sea
Although I know it is part of the native cuisine in many countries, I am opposed to the idea of eating turtle meat since the species is endangered. Should the population be spurred by a rapid growth rate, I could concede to allowing countries where the meat was first cherished historically to enjoy a limited supply. Until then, it will take stories like this one, where a fisherman was found alive after 13 months adrift at sea, to make me say (while cringing), "How fortunate that he was able to fortify his health by catching and eating turtles."
