This thread is excellent, I am actually excited, how sad is that eh, but I am.
I'm tripping on Egi's and the science backs it up. Long live the Ika.US Heart Foundation said:About one-third to one-fourth of blood cholesterol is carried by high-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL cholesterol is known as the "good" cholesterol because a high level of it seems to protect against heart attack. (Low HDL cholesterol levels [less than 40 mg/dL] increase the risk for heart disease.) Medical experts think that HDL tends to carry cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it's passed from the body. Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from plaque in arteries, thus slowing the buildup.
shellfish are all fairly high in cholesterol as compared to the same weight of meats like beef, lamb and chicken, the difference is the HDL compared to LDL cholesterol, which is the one that clogs arteries. This is the difference between the good and band cholesterol everybody talks about.
Oh for sure we haven't got the full picture yet.... I don't doubt your findings Paul I just think the picture is far from complete...
I think we'll learn so much more this season with the wrasse and soft plastics.Oh for sure we haven't got the full picture yet.
Maybe the reason I've been lucky on big shads off the boat is that the wrasse could be used to the odd mouthful of baitfish out there.
Off the shore a different story perhaps, but just in case I have bought some big craws for the boat and they are sitting stewing in crab juice right now....
I really dont know the range of UK squid Tim, its seems common knowledge says that squid only frequent our south coasts, but that may be just tradition to think that. Whats the furthest north people know of them being caught on jigs from the shore in the UK?Does anyone know if you can catch them anywhere in West Wales? I love squid to eat and think it would be good fun to catch them too.
