Use this program to illustrate connections between fish stock depletion and growing tensions over ocean resources. The exhaustion of West Africa's fisheries is shown to have economic consequences a hemisphere away-specifically in Japan, which depends on Moroccan production for much of its octopus imports. Heavy fishing by European fleets in Senegalese waters-and the 1995 "Turbot War" between Spain and Canada-provide concrete evidence that competition for the ocean's riches is hardly a local problem. This is an effective study of the industrialized world's consumption trends and their political and environmental fallout.
