For the first time in Alaska’s history, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has cancelled this years snow crab season in the Bering Sea due to the sea urchin’s dwindling population numbers. The usual suspect the media will name for the cause is climate change, but will not name who is, most likely, the real culprit: China.
China has a massive fleet of fishing boats placed in key locations around the world. They vessels not only conduct fishing but also a variety of military-oriented functions, such as monitor other country’s ships. Worst of all, the Middle Kingdom has no regard for the laws or customs of the sea and will use a number of unethical or illegal methods to achieve their goal. No objections raised by environmentalists about this.
