The article presents several news and views about the Australian fishing industry. For the New South Wales (NSW) industry, things have hardly changed since the 19th century with NSW stocks being ruined by large 30-foot boats landing as much as 14 baskets of fish. With the closure of Jim Racovolis' "Raco" and Melbourne's fish market, the fishing industry appears to have lost its cohesiveness and its sense of unity. Andrew Puglisi has won the ABC rural producer award for his mussel-farms.
