Subject: Re: Mullet fishery in NSW

TEXT/PLAIN (27 lines)

I observed a mullet fishery in Louisiana during breeding season about a 
month ago, in which  both the males and  females had gonads removed and 
the rest of the fish  were discarded. I was told the flesh was not good 
because the fish had been putting all their energy into gonad development.
But still, it seemed very wasteful that the rest of the fish couldn't have 
been used for animal feed or something.

1880's: "There's lots of good fish in the sea"   W.S. Gilbert
1990's:  Many fish stocks depleted due to overfishing, habitat loss,
          and pollution.
2000's:  Marine reserves, ecosystem restoration, and pollution reduction
          MAY help restore populations.
