Kwandongwife volunteering at Taean

VERY early today, my wife, as part of a group of Coasties, went to Taean to assist in cleaning up the oil spill. She'll return later tonight, having spent a full day on site and near to ten hours on the road to and from. Tomorrow, she will go to the office as part of the full staffing plan they are following to be as busy as the West coast Cost Guard staff.

Good on you for that.

Was it only me, or did anyone else notice the piles of styrofoam, and the amount of rubbish the clean up left behind?

Can you tell me where I can find that article you posted about the fishermen in the East Sea depleting the North Pacific Pollock stocks?

When they were told not to catch juvenile fish, but they just kept harvesting, and depleted the stocks, and now they have to import Hwangtay from Japan for the festivals on Taygwallyong?

Rick,

There sure is a lot of ...stuff on the beach -I thought I was looking at blankets or sheets of some sort and assumed they were part of the clean-up materials. I could well be wrong.

I remember a post about overfishing but am having trouble finding it. I just went through all my posts and could not find anything. If I do find something, from my post or not, I will try to leave a link in the comments here.

Rick,

I was told that when a cleaning rag was saturated with oil, it was discarded. So, along with the many tons of oil, there would also be a ton or so of cotton, as well.
