12. It's unrestricted capitalism that's the problem

not the regulated capitalism in the West.

If anything, we are being exploited as Chinas largest market.

In terms of fishing:

1 China 11.5 million tons 1999

4 Japan 3.96 million tons 1999
5 Russia 3.47 million tons 1999
6 Indonesia 3.41 million tons 1999
7 United States 3.33 million tons 1999

Southeast Asiaís Fisheries Near Collapse from Overfishing

Much of the overfishing and destructive fishing in Southeast Asia is attributable to illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing (IUU). IUU fishing occurs region-wide, with violators ranging from small-scale local fishermen to large-scale enterprises conducted on commercial fishing trawlers. There are many drivers for IUU fishing in the region, not the least of which is that demand now appears to exceed supply. Operationally, the main issue is weak fishing regulations among the regionís many countries, together with a lack of cooperation on management among these countries.
