    Fear of the ‘unknown’ will remain a universal problem i guess…. and although fun to read it is also very sad to hear that reasonable people do believe them from time to time and so these conspiracy theories do have real world implications:

    I found this an interesting read:

    How a London, Ont., cricket plant found itself at the heart of an international conspiracy theory | CBC News

    So currently we do not bother to much with them but try to inform the people as good as possible, but the ones totally convinced by the theory I’m not going to try to persuade.

    It’s bothersome this kind of things actually have to be taken serious, as otherwise it might spiral out of control.

    But on that note.

    I’ve heard theories of IPIFF being controlled by the large industrial actors to keep the small companies in check.
    And that the fish feed industry is downplaying the performance of insects to get better pricing.

    The IPIFF ‘theory’ I have heard in the past, also part of the reason why they changed their pricing system a few years back so it is easier for smaller companies to join.

    The aquaculture theory is new to me, altough you would expect they just look at the scientific literature 🙂

    To answer my own question, it is now on youtube.

    As you can expect, a lot of scary music and images that are totally unrelated to the issue.
