The author discusses how Australia's fishing industry has been impacted as of July 2011. He states that previously, there were fewer regulations on fishing, those in the industry were both united and militant about their rights, and the Australian people were generally apolitical. He claims that with the growth of more centralized power, increased regulations, and apathy from the industry, new laws have hurt fishing, raised prices, and hurt consumers. He suggests that unless fishermen become more active, their industry will suffer more.
