The article is indeed well written. If you did actually read the piece, you would note that the history of fishing is NOT to overfish and that these people depend on healthy fish stocks in order to continue to make their living.
If the fishery is indeed weak, where is the scientific data to prove it? That's the point of the current hitch with the entire MPA process.
The MPAs are law. I can accept that. However, their implementation without sound scientific foundation serves neither the fish nor people who's livelihood depends on them.
