greyhat: Don't forget to keep all those empty bottles and cans for those that live near recycling centers. 10 cents a piece adds up, so does a few cans of beans here and there!

Good to see our enemies siding with us against China. Pig virus has wiped out a lot of China's pork, low on protein, need to steal fish...are they desperate NOW, or just staking a claim for action in 5-10 years' time?
The Chinese fishing fleets going around the world plundering other country's fish stocks is nothing new. Only new thing is that the Chinese coastguard has started accompanying fishing fleets in Asian waters in recent years, and aggressively defends them when local navies / coastguard object. Several Chinese fishing vessels have been sunk in southeast Asian waters over the past few years (and South America a few years back), but the government is still sending the fleets further afield every year nevertheless.
Saw a video yesterday on the Chinese fishing fleet, 2600 super trawlers that have bottom dragging nets that just take and destroy everything. The smaller fishing trawlers were complaining that they struggled to meet their quotas now because the super trawlers are bigger and faster then them and get to the fishing spots first and are now relying on government subsidies to survive.
