Introducing And Inducing Extreme Inefficiency In Commercial Fishing (June 19, 2017)

. . .

K          “The anadromous fish return to the mouths of rivers with almost clock-work predictability.  Fish traps at the entrances could collect the fish efficiently and allow for the tender tender and immediate transport to the market.”

J          “That is hard not to notice.  Yet that approach may be too efficient and too logical.  Instead, an expensive and elaborate flotilla of fishing vessels and tender vessels steams out to the open seas, jeopardizes the lives of captain and crew, and intercepts the fish a few hours or minutes before their appointment and otherwise ready, compliant and inexpensive assembly at the mouth.”

K          “Go figure.”

. . .

K          “Yet the most fundamental question presents itself.  How to distribute the bounty if it is harvested collectively rather than individually.”

. . .

J          “And the scourge that cannot be acknowledged continues unabated.  Fish corralled using either technique may still be irradiated.”
