The author examines the unfair and uneven distribution of profit opportunities in the fishing industry. He suggests that the profits coming from non-renewable resources like mining and oil drilling are obscene. He attributes the uneven allocation of national wealth to politically self-serving national and federal governments such as Norway which earns revenue by allowing the exploitation of resources. The author also offers commentary on the decline of adult prawns in the Clarence River and the recovery of prawn growth in the Cooks River in Australia.
