The author comments on several issues concerning the Australian marine and fishing industry. He reacts to the controversy over Woodside Petroleum's proposal to switch from a shore-based liquid natural gas (LNG) processing plant to a floating one offshore from Broome and the previous government idiocy that led to the establishment of shore based prawn processing plants. He also criticises the government's plan to sell or privatise ASC, formerly the Australian Submarine Corp.
