This can’t be right:
“For the first time in at least a century, U.S. fishermen won’t take too much of any species from the sea, one of the nation’s top fishery scientists says.”
Not overfishing? We’re going to have a hard time ginning up any alarm over that. And it gets worse:
“‘When you compare the United States with the European Union, with Asian countries, et cetera, we are the only industrialized fishing nation who actually has succeeded in ending overfishing,’ [the scientist] said.”
Oh, come on. They’d have us believe the US has done something good for the environment, where the EU has failed? This must be some new variety of denialism. The scientists need to get on this and structure a new study that will show some kind of impending eco-disaster if US fishermen don’t stop at once. They’d better tamp this down before it goes out of control. Good news about the environment could easily lead to profits being made by someone in the private sector.
