In general, I’m against commercial fishing because it removes goods from the ecosystem without any input to replace them. Fishermen aren’t feeding the fish that they catch like a pig farmer feeds and raises hogs (fish farming has it’s own issues). But damn, if you’re gonna fish, do it like the Icelanders. Thanks in part to the innovation of the Iceland Ocean Cluster, they’re using “the whole buffalo” to create much more product – and value – than fish sticks alone. The result? The overall dollar value of the fishery has doubled while catch has been cut nearly in half. That’s pretty damn R.A.D.
