Individual Fishing Quotas (ITQ's) - The US Situation

Direct parallels to what has, and is happening here in Canada. The controversial situation we face with halibut is a direct result of DFO pursuing the ITQ model, and many more fisheries are following merrily along in it's footsteps.

NOT the way to go IMHO...
