Well then, why not reform those quota fisheries that are in your opinion failing?

Is social cooperation that difficult in New Zealand?  Do your regard people in New Zealand and around the world as culturally deficient, i.e., incapable of solving the simplest of social dilemmas?   
 
That's not the point. Every fish you take out of an already heavily stressed environment, just adds to the stress on that environment. It is time we learned to leave them well alone (which would be to solve the social dilemma, which, being social, is never simple), at least until they start to resemble something normal, which at last count, none of the marine environments are close to.

Get the covid so your taste buds die, then the only thing you have to overcome is the texture.

Yikes.  

We stopped eating any saltwater fish (including aqua-culture) last year. There has to be an immediate global moratorium on fishing to give to oceans time to recover (and even that might not be enough). 
 
No.

There has to be a continuing move to tradeable quota fisheries from open access chaos.  Moratoria are great for heart-warming  virtue signalling but it will not work.

For an example of well managed international quota fishery, see the Pacific Halibut fishery.

Simply put, “if you eat mussels, you eat microplastics,” the scientists said in a statement.

Brockovich is following the usual us + them, moralistic approach to policy.   Too bad.

No. He's not kidding. It's a sticky wicket this public private cooperation thing. The only problem is that the public generally has little knowledge
of the interconnectedness of their elected leaders and their private agreements. What else is new? How long has the President-elect been in government? Dare I say a really long time?
I'm sure the MSM and one or another committee will eventually get to the bottom of it.
Yay 20/20 vision and behold the new visionaries!

Can't believe MSM is finally acknowledging this.  Talk about an inconvenient truth for all renewable energy sources that use batteries:
 

The curse of 'white oil': electric vehicles' dirty secret

 
The race is on to find a steady source of lithium, a key component in rechargeable electric car batteries. But while the EU focuses on emissions, the lithium gold rush threatens environmental damage on an industrial scale
