Robert De Niro Scolded For Serving Up Endangered Fish At Nobu
You talkin’ to me? Are YOU talkin’ to me? Yes, Bobby De Niro I AM!!
Kickass actor Robert De Niro received some bad press after an environmental group accused him of serving endangered fish at his popular restaurant chain Nobu. The criticism comes from Greenpeace (the group you always feel a little guilty about ignoring on the street) who claim Nobu is “clearly making a great deal of money serving up endangered fish.”
The fish in question is the Atlantic bluefin tuna which is so endangered that the World Wildlife Fund has asked for its sale to be banned. Unfortunately this near extinct fish is still available in some restaurants…including Nobu.
And we’re not just talking about some little minnow here! The Atlantic bluefin tuna can weight up to 1,500 pounds and over short distances can swim as fast as a horse can run. It can dive 3,000 feet in a matter of minutes, and make it across the Atlantic Ocean in 40 days.
Help Greenpeace and Ecorazzi say NO to the capture and sale of Atlantic bluefin tuna by avoiding Nobu until they agree to stop depleting our oceans!
