An article in the New York Times makes clear the inter-relatedness of all life on earth.
Menhaden, a species of fish that was once as common as the passenger pigeon, are the linchpin of aquatic life. But they are being overfished to extinction, and one company, Omega Protein of Houston, is largely responsible.
Who owns the menhaden? And does Omega Protein have the right to fish them to extinction in federal waters?
