A Simple Fish Story

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish.
But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades.
So to feed the Japanese population
Fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever
The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish.
If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh.
The Japanese did not like the taste
To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats
They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea.
Freezers allowed theboats to go farther and stay longer
However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish
The frozen fish brought a lower price .
So fishing companies installed fish tanks.
They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin
After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving
They were tired and dull, but alive.
Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference
Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste
The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish
So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem?
How do theyget fresh-tasting fish to Japan?

If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend?
Scroll down for answer :..................

Here is How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh:

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks
But now they add a small shark to each tank.
The shark eats a few fish,but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state.
The fish are challenged
Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most ofthe time tired & dull
So we need a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving?

Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and lively

There are other examples too, like you believe in good because of the evil and you believe in GOD because of the devil.
But negation should not justify your actions, i think human beings are more pro-active than fish..

There are certain common denominators/peculiarities pervasive throughout nature irrespective of evolutionary hierarchy and the sophistication ,size and convolutions of the brain. This simple fish story exhibits just that….nothing more , nothing less!

What you have stated .... ..what is the connection with this story?
