What should we do about overfishing? How can we balance the needs of fish with the needs of fishermen? It's the central dilema of fishery management.
Thanks to a few engaged readers we have a blogfish debate in the comments section of: Is the U. S. still overfishing?
Comments center on a (so far) little-known example: persistent overfishing and serious depletion of some groupers and snappers in the U. S. South Atlantic region, in the Atlantic ocean from North Carolina to Florida.
What do you think? When should overfishing be allowed in order to support the economic and social needs of fishermen?
