Dolphin-safe tuna: a well-intentioned disaster

Leave a comment

Oh woe is me, I absolutely hate it when I read things like this (via kottke.org).

“By trying to help dolphins, groups like Greenpeace caused one of the worst marine ecological disasters of all time. Few other fisheries are as bad for groups like sharks and sea turtles as the purse seine fishery, and none are as large in scale.”

I have no idea what the right answer is on that one.  Read the whole depressing affair here.
