Last night in my ever increasing appetite for redundant information I found myself reading and researching salmon statistics. As in Canadian salmon, specifically looking for BC salmon and where it ends up and who gets to eat it.

I found some detailed charts from some department of agricultural what-not and puzzled out the numbers thinking them pounds of fish until I read the word dollar. The statistic that jumped out was the increases and decreases. UK down 22%, America up something similiar, Japan and China up 119% and 118%. Sadly despite epic searching there was no firm date to be found anywhere on the data.

The most ridiculous thing on the page was the copyright sign to Her Majesty the Queen at the bottom. What precisely does she own the stats on who eats salmon? Or the salmon itself?  Puzzling.
