There are some foods that are so popular that they are at risk of going extinct. What are they and why is it so difficult to harvest them?

climate change is not the fault of humanity, I call it "climate normalizing" considering that we are exiting an ice age, and the fact that it was warmer in the time of the early Roman empire than it is today confirms this

@99smite yes, you are right-there are truffle farms in N Carolina and Oregon. The huckleberry needs are way more complex, mysterious, yet understood here in Montana.

Um, in Manjimup, Western Australia, they farm black truffle. What I learned from the tour was that it took >10 yr to grow the needed habitat for the fungi (mostly hazelnut + fewer oak trees) and they have specialiced dogs coming in to sniff out the ones ripe to pick during harvest season. With the price those truffles sell, it was probably still a good investment. The Truffle Kertuffle is a fun harvest festival to visit if you happen to be in this part of the world :)

Huckleberries taking 15 years to bare fruits from the seed?... Olive trees too take many years before baring their fruits.

The saskatoon berry is even more popular than the huckleberry, and it is also hard to grow, though there are places on line where they can be purchased. I'm actually pretty surprised you ignored them given that they grow in nearly all of southern Canada and the northern U.S. states and even Alaska, and don't have bitter seeds, unlike huckleberries. And don't let anybody tell you they're called anything but "saskatoon berry." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amelanchier_alnifolia

As a person who has done some larval rearing of yellowfin tuna there has been closed cycle work on bluefin tuna in Japan at Kiki University. It can be done but economically viable is another matter as those that sell for 3 million dollars are more show-piece auctions.

We farmed truffles in the 1800s. We bred a variety of dogs to assist in this. Then France fed half of its Male population to British made bullets fired from german made rifles. Then they got roflstomped by the great depression and then the blitz. The specific farming methods required to grow truffles as well as many of the fields were lost in the german occupation resulted in a drastic drop in production. People used to peel their truffles like potatoes. Nowadays even the peel is vital, and so they are gently grated. Classism is also kind of an issue. Farmers know they can sell their crop to stupid rich people at a massive markup, and so they choose to do so. The investment in new truffle fields is so long term that in modern day capitalism it's simply infeasible compared to the communal farming allotments that 18th century France once had. Genetic modification could solve all these problems but Greenpeace are a bunch of whack jobs so that isn't happening any time soon.

As the manager of an aquaponic greenhouse i can tell you that “larvae of one species of [ANY FISH] are packed in tightly, they grow more slowly, and fewer survive”. It is quite literally the FIRST rule of livestock... the biggest issue for bluefin farming is that any farms would need to be open water farms that require vast tracts of ocean with graded nets forming concentric circles with the inner nets smallest and outer nets widest, allowing larvae and and prey fish to swim freely in and out and only preventing eacape of larger fish as they grow from feeding. The issue with this is that it requires a huge operation and typically in non-coastal waters or out in international waters. This provides both a massive risk to the operation as it leaves them Out of jurisdiction of most protectionist policies as well as leaves them without public funding

There is a type of spinach called Morogo here in South Africa that can only grow in nature else it becomes poisonous due to the extra nitrates in the fertilizers used in commercial farming.

Weird to mention bluefin specifically, because most fish aren't economically worthwhile to farm. Bluefin are the norm not the exception.

Truffles are now farmed in a few countries. The trees and fungus have been imported and grown successfully in Western Australia. We see truffle on our restaurant menus all the time now.
