The author discusses political issues concerning the fishing industry in Australia as of May 2011. He stresses that the industry does not need additional laws and regulations to sustain itself after the economic crisis. He criticizes previous measures such as the reduction in the southern blue fin quota of the tuna industry and the decision made by Australian Minister Tony Burke to consider southern blue fin tuna on the endangered list of species. He also comments on the increasing operating expenses imposed on the industry.
