senate Bill S. 1336

Should the South Pacific Fisheries Convention Be Implemented?

Argument in favor

The international fisheries convention that this bill implements will make it easier for the U.S. to sustainably manage the fisheries of the South Pacific, and deter illegal fishing by foreign countries.

The con argument sounds like: if everything is not completely predictable & the U.S. isn't in total control, we can't risk any action. (This sounds like toddler's logic.) It is counterproductive to not be willing to work with other countries. Although it does seem that conservatives are so risk-averse that we will all have to move off planet to make them feel safe enough to participate in reality!

An international treaty to prevent over fishing sounds to me like a good thing that needs to be implemented in other places as well.

Yes we need to stop fishing, allow the ocean to recover. And to start cleaning up the oceans rather than fishing them.

Argument opposed

While its objectives are worthwhile, there’s ample reason for skepticism as to whether an agreement that asks a country like China to play by the rules can be successful.

Great idea. Won't work. Countries gota eat. Even if China signed on, their fishing fleet will ignore the rules.

We cannot afford to add bureaucracy to our already bloated, over-bearing government.
