    The only way for any fish species to rebuild it's stock is with man's help! Man has almost destroyed the fish stock with the use of draggers that destroy all in their path and only man can help rebuild it, I have a paper published by the DEPT OF FISHERIES CALLED ONE IN A MILLION, that tells how one cod egg in a million survives to become an adult cod, this paper was published 30+ years ago if only one in a million survived to become an adult cod fish 30+ years ago when fish were plenty full HOW low MUST it BE now? MAN HAS DESTROYED THE FISH STOCK AND ONLY MAN CAN REBUILD IT, IF FISH WAS HATCHED IN THE FISH HATCHERY AND THE YOUNG FISH RAISED UNTIL THEY ARE A FEW WEEKS OLD OR A SET PEROD OF TIME THEN RELEASED THEM INTO THE SMALL COVES AND BAYS AROUND THE ISLAND TO HELP NATURE REBUILD THE FISH STOCKS ALL AROUND THE ISLAND THEN MABEY THE SURVIVAL RATE OF COD FISH WILL INCREASE FROM ONE IN A MILLION 30+ YEARS AGO TO MANY HUNDREDS IN A MILLION, MAN HAS ALMOST DESTROYED THE FISH STOCK AND ONLY MAN CAN HELP REBUILD IT, WITH THE HELP OF A FISH HATCHERY. TO CHANGE THE SURVIVAL RATE FROM ONE IN A MILLION TO MANY THOUSANDS IN A MILLION, MAN HAS ALMOST DESTROYED THE FISH STOCK AND ONLY MAN CAN HELP REBUILD IT.

      Sorry. I am not interested in helping rebuild the stock of fishes. If more people can work as fishermen, then I will end up paying for more EI. I would rather not, so I hope the fishery NEVER recovers. From an economic point of view, NFLD does not need fishery anymore. The economy is diversified now. Yes, man has destroyed the fishery, but I am happy that they did. The people of this province ALL deserve better than dirty smelly fishery jobs, so from where I sit, less fish is better.

    I have a 30+ year old paper produced by the DEPT. of Fisheries CALLED "ONE IN A MILLION " That tells how ONE COD EGG IN A MILLION survives to become an "ADULT COD FISH" This paper was put out 30+ years ago, when fish were plenty full , IF THE SURVIVAL RATE 30+ YEARS AGO WAS ONE COD IN A MILLION, WHEN FISH WERE PLENTY HOW LOW MUST IT BE NOW? IF ONLY ONE COD EGG IN A MILLION SURVIVED TO BECOME AN ADULT COD 30+ YEARS AGO . THE ONLY WAY TO INCREASE THE FISH STOCK IS WITH THE USE OF A FISH HATCHERY WHERE COD EGGS CAN BE HATCHED AND THE YOUNG FISH WHEN THEY REACH A DESIRED SIZE BE RELEASED INTO PROTECTED BAYS AND COVES ALL AROUND THE ISLAND SO THAT THE SURVIVAL RATE OF COD WILL INCREASE TO REBUILD THE COD STOCK THAT HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY THE LARGE FISHING FLEETS MAN HAS DESTROYED THE FISH STOCK, IT IS ONLY WITH MANS HELP THAT THE FISH STOCK CAN BE REBUILT QUICKLY, BY BREEDING COD FISH WITH THE USE OF A FISH HATCHERY THEN RELEASING THEM INTO PROTECTED BAYS AND COVES THE COD SURVIVAL RATE WOULD GO FROM "ONE IN A MILLION' 30+ YEARS AGO TO MANY THOUSANDS IN A MILLION, MAN HAS DESTROYED THE COD STOCK, ONLY MAN CAN HELP REBUILD IT.

    The EU has for years now availed itself of the benefits of international law. The area extending 200 miles west of Ireland has been designated a Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA), pursuant to the authority granted to states that are parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). Such designation allows domestic pollution prevention law (and regulations controlling tanker and other traffic) to extend beyond its present limit of 12 miles, to 200 miles. Do anyone really believe that the area west of Ireland is a more sensitive marine area than the Grand Banks? Why are we doing nothing to protect the Grand Banks, when Canada is also a party to UNCLOS?
