The 2006 Fishery (not Shrubery)
Note: This is out of
so don't bet the farm on it.
Since 1991, The BIOT has contracted with Marine Resources Assesment Group (MRAG) to "manage" the fishery in the Chagos and on Diego Garcia. They've got a "Fisheries Patrol" Vessel, the PACIFIC MARLIN, with which they do about two months patroling during the tuna season (December and January) and also about half a year's worth of patroling the "inshore fishery". They also make money with the PACIFIC MARLIN by fishing themselves. So they rely on their own reports of the health of the fishery to justify their catch. Hmmmm... I wonder how that works when it comes to the 'perception' of a conflict of interest?
