Conviction of Sea Bass Poachers
Australian authorities have convicted 2 people on illegal fishing.
These fishermen were caught carrying 143 tons of Patagonian toothfish,
also known as Chilean sea bass. According to fisheries minister Eric
Abetz, "The conviction sends a clear message to the international
fishing community that Australia will not tolerate illegal exploitation
of its fisheries resources."

The depletion of fish species due to not only illegal fishing, but
also overfishing, is a result of our poor stewardship of God’s creation.
Stricter laws need to be enforced so the biodiversity on Earth stops
being threatened. However, the transition to a plant-based diet would
prove most beneficial to the environment and would help bring nature
closer to God’s original plan.
