STENECK IN CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR BLOG Comments from Robert Steneck of the UMaine School of Marine Sciences faculty are in a Christian Science Monitor blog
The blog examines issues related to the depletion of fisheries in various parts of the world, attributable to what Steneck calls "roving banditry" -- large-scale trawling operations from places like Europe, South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan and the
U.S. aggressively harvesting fish populations in regions including Africa's northwest coast. The story draws a connection between depleted fisheries and the emergence of piracy in that part of the world.
