Rob, did you know that the beluga sturgen is going to be put on the
species list? I guess their population has decreased by 90% in the past 20
years. That's so disgusting, all for caviar...80% of which is sold to the
United States of course. We're the gluttons of the earth... Info from NPR
World News.

Thought you'd be interested.
