The author talks about several issues related to the fishing industry in Australia. According to him, a collaborative enterprise exists in Tasmania which brings the fish farming and wild fish sectors together to a mutually profitable and environmentally desirable collaboration. He relates the case of the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council (TSIC) which employs staff who do their job well. He thinks that people now view the organization Greenpeace as the more responsible and conservative body to deal with when industry wants to talk.
