Pirates of the oceans

Has anybody thought about the conduct of European and Asian fishing fleet depleting the ocean, and wiping out all forms of life off the coasts of Africa? In the end, local communities have no means of subsistence. Personally, i would become resentful to see large foreign fishing vessels taking away my livelihood and the future of my children. Destroying the marine environment right in front of my eyes: Can we call that another form of terrorism?

I am not trying to justify kidnapping, no, no no..

But the fishing policies of western nations have dire implications and consequences for the already impoverished and vulnerable locals. It is sad.
