Argentina exported 329,751 tons of seafood in the nine months of 2013 to September, a figure which shows an increase of 14.9% compared to the same period in 2012, when 286.899 tons were shipped abroad. Read full article
What an incredibly unbelievable way of running a country. Doesn't argieland remember that it's supposed to be isolationist? The fish have been caught. So keep them. They may become an essential foodstuff. Baked beans on toasted squid. Cheese and tomato hakewitches. Anchovies on stingray. Very important when there's no bread! Weakfish loaf has to be a winner.
Is this another report from Pescanova? I smell something fishy going on here.
Perhaps you could all take a page from this tactic:
With 99% of English language music educing guaranteed laments and bewailing (and been proven right again on something), that would certainly be a powerful way of you keeping more of the catch.
Pretty funny, that would definitely have me raising my hands. On the other hand Sepultura, the great Brazilian metal band, would no doubt have the same effect. Unless the pirates were Brazilian of course.
Also, Britney only works like this on heterosexual pirates. If the pirates were gay ( admittedly unlikely amongst ferocious Somali Muslims ) they'd be begging them to crank it up.
182,201 tons of fish were exported, up 2.8%
147,550 tons of ‘seafood’ were exported, up 34.3%
91,727 tons of squid were exported, up 43.7%
85,308 tons of hake, up 7.7%
48,113 tons of shrimp, up 21.1%
5,724 tons of Patagonian anchovy, up 0.6%
4,450 tons of stingray, up 2.4%
4,869 tons of Patagonian scallop, up 4.4%.
Hoki (12,941tons): Down 13.2%
Whitemouth croaker (29,407 tons): Down 3.2%
Pollock : 9.4% (from 1,877 to 1,702 tons).
Weakfish: 3.9% (from 13,055 to 12,553 tons).
Argentina's 9 month *declared* annual comparisons [FIS] show severely stressed stocks;
evidence of attempted over-fishing and
evidence of actual over-fishing.
It’s my belief that Argentina is trying to Klondyke-fish the South Atlantic.
That is, to strip the seas of fish, squid and other mollusca for food and export money, with no reference to conservation of stocks.
ICES limits mean nothing to Argentina,
integrated international research on fish stocks means nothing to Argentina.
Short-term maximum gain is all that matters to Argentina,
and to hell with the future health of the South Atlantic.
