12. Anyone else ever read "Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World?

Basic story is this...
Big corporations tell the small fisherman that regulations are BAD.
Big corporations fish the oceans clean.
Big corporations move on to other resources that can be stripmined and local fishermen are left with a collapsed economy.
The sequel is that fishermen want someone or something to blame and begin taking it out of other wildlife (canadian harp seal hunt is another example).
I once found an injured sea lion on a beach in CA and couldn't get anyone to come. Next time I'll say it is a stellar's sea lion (endangered) and it will get a more rapid response.
