Property Rights in Fish

Here is another article from The Economist. Some of the comments on the latter are from nay-sayers worried that it didn't address "the human element." Well, I for one am opposed to buying, selling, processing, and eating the human element, property rights or not.

At least until the theory has more evidence for it.
