The article discusses issues concerning the fishing industry in Australia and Scotland. Various political groups are accused of using environmentalism to support what they consider to be ridiculous policies, such as the Greens movement to ban the use of waterways for development and GetUp's plan to prioritize mental health. A description by Charles St. John of the Scottish fishing industry written in 1848 is presented. The Queensland government cited the movie "Happy Feet" to explain why the fishing industry should be curtailed.
