The Bell Tolls for NE Cod Fishing

The tragedy of the commons embodied.  New England's landmark Georges Bank cod fishery has been drastically cut because it's on the verge of extinction.

The fishing industry is going to get crushed.  Livelihoods ruined.  Boats sold.  Families have to relocate.  This is not hyperbole.  This is sad reality.  What a mess.
