Fish and Pigs and Chicken, Oh My!

I didn't know this: http://gristmill.grist.org/story/2008/6/27/123228/109

Excerpt from article linked above:

Each year we feed 14 million tons of wild-caught fish (including anchovies, sardines, mackerel, and herring) to pigs and chickens around the globe. That amounts to 17 percent of all the wild fish we catch. Pigs and chickens eat double the amount of fish that Japan consumes annually and six times more seafood than the entire U.S. population eats each year.



What are these pigs and chickens paying per pound for their fish? I can barely afford a single .4 lb. fillet a week!
