Thank you for sharing this. Our abuse of the ecosystem is frightening. It seems so strange that fishing cultures would be so self-destructive.
As a native of Long Island New York, I can tell you that our fishing community has suffered quite a lot from lack of stewardship of their trade. But
that was just local (generally speaking).
I think the global shark trade is close to the brink of decimating itself, and along with it, our oceans will change dramatically.
