    The Alaskan Pollock fishery and the Newfoundland Cod fishery are very similar. They both were both seen as an endless bounty because they relied on the the limited data from catch data every year. This lead to decline in biomass but was not indicated through catch data because it was very consistent over the years. This contributed to perspective that these were gold rush fisheries along with the fact that the profit of these fisheries were very substantial. Both fisheries covered a large area which means that the same problem of “no mans land” affects both fisheries. This means that there isn’t very much regulation that can be enforced in those regions. This means that countries that choose not to do much responsible fisheries management cannot be regulated.


    This I believe is the major similarity in both fisheries. To make accurate decisions about how to manage a fishery you must have accurate data
