I published an episode on herring fishers in British Columbia that were harassing sea lions, who were also catching herring. the trouble was, the herring were being caught by sea lions while in the fisher's gill nets. I asked the question "Who has priority over the herring?"
I felt bad for both sides of the issue (the fishers and the sea lions), but as a conservationist, I tended to side with the sea lions. To get a feel for how fishers thought about the issue, I asked some recreational fishermen in the Fish Nerds Podcast group last week. I was happy to find that I got responses!
Check out the episode for the responses and let me know what you thought of them in the Speak Up For Blue Ocean Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
