I was watching a show the other day, where a fisherman was complaining about the lack of fish catch in recent years, and compared his plight to that of the farmer. A farmer tills the earth, fertilizes it, sows the seeds, waters, and then nutures the growing plant prior to harvest. Quite a lot of work, all year around. Fields must be left to fallow and regenerate, the new must be plowed. A fisherman goes out in a boat, and catches sea life. The ocean does all of the prep-work for them. I wonder if fisher's had the same respect for the ocean, that farmer's do for the land, if we would be in such a predicament?
