Commenting on nature’s growth
I have to agree that fishermen have to control that inner greed before we see a difference. However, I have seen some huge catches during the recreational fishery.
There must be some cod as the mothers and fathers have grown huge below the ocean’s surface. I see now that the Orca whales have surfaced in Newfoundland and Labrador and putting on a whale of a performance for the tourists. What we are seeing now is man’s inability to see beyond the ocean’s surface as to what is really happening.
They have an idea, but nature never shows its true colours when researchers are viewing it. It is very obvious that graphs, maps, underwater cameras and brilliant minds of oceanographic researchers are not getting and recording the true reality of nature’s growth and performance below the ocean’s surface.
It is not absolutely accurate and sometimes mere speculation as the huge codfish recently caught by fishermen has proven them all wrong. I don’t think that mankind will bring back the fishery, but nature will at its own pace in time.
We have seen unpredictable storms when not watching nature through a telescope. It starts and ends in minutes with so much fear and destruction. We cannot throw a bucket over the side of a ship and see it fill up with cod as 500 years ago, but there is certainly enough cod below the ocean’s surface to feed a small family every year.
The days of blassy bough flakes may never return, but there is always hope if nature has its way. I think that researches have been missing the main schools of fish and only catching those out on recess time or the ones mooching a day off. The return of the salmon fishery in British Columbia is a good indication of a big school or university of salmon got missed. Frank Blackwood
