In the Java Sea in Indonesia, I have seen fishers going out in the morning, six of them going out and coming back with five pounds of fish. That is the end point, a pound of fish per person per day to sell for rice. That's where fisheries go if you let it happen. That's where it stabilizes. These people cannot feed their families.More Daniel Pauly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People don't know the past, even though we live in literate societies, because they don't trust the sources of the past.More Daniel Pauly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I personally like the idea of shellfish aquaculture. These are animals that stay quiet, they stay where you put them, and they clean up the water.More Daniel Pauly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The crisis of the fisheries is similar to our economy. This is not one fishery failing, but the whole system.More Daniel Pauly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Small-scale fisheries should not be favoured over large-scale operations ebcause of romantic notions of rugged small operators battling both the elements and anonymous corporations. [They ought to be supported] because of the scientific evidence available to confirm the common-sense inference that local fishers, if given privileged access, will tend to avoid trashing their local stocks, while foreign fishers do not have such motivation.More Daniel Pauly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
