Who Owns the Fish?

&feature=em-uploademail

Published on Mar 12, 2013
Any commercial fisherman used to be able to fish in U.S. seas. Not anymore. Today, the right to fish belongs to a number of private individuals who have traded, bought and sold these rights in unregulated markets. This system, called "catch shares," favors large fishing fleets and has cut out thousands of smaller-scale fishermen. How did this happen? Learn more in this short animation from the Center for Investigative Reporting.

2. Making sure rules are followed at sea would be a great start... Let's begin with the oil

companies that have probably done more to destroy this way of life than over fishing...

3. I don't care what they call it,...be it a chit or a slip or a share a future or a quota...

 

Whenever you represent something as a slip of paper it is treated like you are printing money and the vultures on Wall Street step in who don't care about anything but paper fortunes.

There are people right now making money on shit.

No shit.

Manure is a slip of paper. So are manure futures so there are people making money on shit that doesn't exist yet.

If these people could sell themselves short they would off themselves for a buck.

4. This reminds me of the world of seeds and genes. I guess my cells belong to a corporation because

they have Adam's genes and Eve's mitochondrial DNA.
