A shocking indictment of current fishing policies that cuts through the rhetoric and hauls in the guilty.
"The collapse of the fisheries and the resulting international conflicts brings sharply into view the necessity of implementing conservation measures that control development before we reach the point of ecological collapse. "Sustainability" discussions in Canada and around the world spout much rhetoric, but amount to little else, and only demonstrate the failure of conservation. Like newspeak, sustainability "fishspeak" doesn't hold up in the face of moratoria and the massive unemployment that results.
Within an increasingly globalized and deregulated world economy it may be necessary for coastal fishing communities to advance a sea claim for local rights to what is left of the fish. If we are to avoid repeated conflict on a global basis, then we must realise that this planet is shared and that we cannot simply exploit it."
