Ted Danson Launches Attack On British Fish And Chips

Did Ted Danson just get himself kicked out of our PETA Prime race? Maybe! Just days after Ecorazzi asked YOU to decide who should be PETA Prime’s first vegetarian spokesperson, one of our contestants, Ted Danson, is causing some serious fish controversy.

Ted started Oceana — the largest international group focused solely on ocean conservation — 20 years ago to help save the oceans inhabitants. Recently Danson spoke out against the traditional British dish of fish and chips, claiming it’s causing the near extinction of an endangered species of shark. Danson revealed that the “fish” from said fish and chips could in fact be “spiny dogfish,” a rare species of shark that is on the World Conservation Union Critically Endangered List.

Even though Danson admits that, “in general we are over fishing all our fisheries around the world,” he has no interest in quitting HIS OWN fish habit. Ted said: “I love fish and I love fish and chips. I am not going to stop eating fish and chips. Not eating fish and chips is not going to have an impact necessarily. What is needed is to become an activist to try to get the policy changed on shark fishing.”

I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be Bitter Bob over here, but shouldn’t the founder of the world’s largest ocean conservation group avoid oceanic products? I know that some fish-eaters call themselves vegetarian, but consuming the very thing you are working to save seems like a pretty backwards idea to me. What do you think Ecorazzi readers? Is Ted Danson an ocean hypocrite? Chime in and share your thoughts!
