Some fishing regulations have been put in place over the decades to prevent overfishing, but recently, fishermen couldn't even reach the annual limit of 14 million pounds.

Shame, I know I should eat Pacific Cod but it's not as good.

And these few fish that remain will perish soon enough. Contraception should be the only thing people should be fishing 4.

This is a result of over fishing by greedy fishermen who are putting themselves out of employment.

Cod is overfished and declining all over the world! And it is NOT because of animal interference! I love cod and I can still remember the taste of it but I haven't eaten it for years. There are other fish in the sea that are not threatened! Thanks Cal!

Confused, and appalled. This does not need to happen, and why do "rejected" catches need to be sliced apart and tossed down the ramp? noted ... sadly, noted.
