Worldwide fishing ban.
Should have had fishing farms set up years ago.
Scarcity = profit however....

Noted. Overfishing is a problem worldwide. Perhaps this itself indicates that human populations are larger than they can sustainably be.

Fishing should be banned world side for ever. I have been a Vegan for 48 years so that proves you do not need to eat any murdered animal so survive. Also all my animals including dogs and cats are veggie.

It is a beginning in the right direction but if the age old problem of overpopulation is not addresses and acted upon at the same time it will remain futile.

One thing I love about this site is how easy it makes it for me to be a global citizen and be informed about these things that are happening across the world. Thank you Cal, the work you and others do to keep us informed about things that happen in China and elsewhere is appreciated.
