    I have no idea what kind of a process we could have to rectify what seems to drag on year after year in our fishing industry.

    I can't see with the current system you will ever satisfy all of the stakeholders.

    If the price is too low it is good for the processors and bad for the harvesters. If it is the other way then it is reversed.

    Unfortunately we have mostly a market driven economy with supply and demand dictating the pricing in most things that we consume. I guess the matter only gets compounded when many times it is looked at as a luxury item and not a necessity of life, that only increases the volatility of the demand.

    If you looked at it from an oil producers point of view, if the price is not right they don't pump it out of the ground.

    I guess it may be all to easy to say if the price is not right than leave it in the water.
