It’s my way or the highway – recent proverb
Simple dogmatic answers to complicated situations don’t help anyone – better recent proverb
Instead of working with the Aquarium industry to make things better, anti Aquarium ‘activists’ instead are trying to shut down all wild collection. This myopic view ignores the major issues impacting ocean animal populations (sunscreen, recreational water sports, near shore development, sedimentation, sewage spills, etc) as well as major benefits that well run aquarium fisheries have (economic benefits, respect for the ocean’s bounty, habitat protection and rehabilitation, education, etc). Instead of trying to shut things down for ‘feel good’ reasons , we could all be working together to make things better for concrete and practical reasons. We hope this image generates conversation about this problem.
