Just a quick note to put a really good podcast in front on you. I stumbled into a few stories a few months back about China illegally fishing around the Galapagos Islands (which you can read about here and here ) and in the climate of conflicts in the “Grey Zone” or “Political Warfare,” this story definitely plays it’s part in the new Great Power Competition. The podcast isn’t exclusively about China but talks about coming conflicts on the high seas, disputed territories and the importance of natural resources. On a side note, I just watched Seaspearicy on Netflix, I don’t know how true it is but it also can add some depth to this podcast.
If you are not a subscriber to Angry Planet, you should be. I don’t get a chance to listen to every podcast but generally they are very good and cover topics that are relevant. The podcast is described as such:
Billions of people eat fish every day and as the global population has exploded, so too have human efforts to catch more and more fish. As more people take to the high seas looking for protein, very human problems have followed them. We’re fighting over fish.
Here to walk us through this is someone actively working on the problem in Washington D.C. Captain Kate Higgins-Bloom is the Strategic Foresight Director for the U.S. Coast Guard.
