Grand Banks fisheries

Related to Tragedy of The Commons

Cod in the Grand Banks have been overfished over the recent years and the population is very low. The fishermen don't care about the population. They just want to keep making a profit off the cod, so they just keep fishing even though they are almost gone. The fishermen don't really give a thought to the cod population at all and this is what is causing the issue.

Key Players
