The author reflects on the need to improve the management of the New South Wales (NSW) fish industry in light of the retailers' struggle at the Sydney Fish Market (SFM). He is critical of management that relies on retrenchments and buy-backs for reform and efficiency. That the reformers' quick fix resulted in job losses, bankruptcies and loss of skills and knowledge is pointed out. He suggests putting in more productive effort in Australia's marine resources to avoid problems in food security.
