Page 62 of 83 | 63 T hink about this situation: What if a lumber company went to Yellowstone National Park, cut down a thousand, 50-year-old oak trees and sold them for profit. Sound wrong? How about this then. A corporate company boat sets its net out right past the breakers in the Atlantic Ocean, scoops up all the menhaden in an area, then sells it for millions of dollars worth of personal profit. Is that wrong? One of those situations is illegal, the other is not. And thus, we enter the sticky realm of private companies harvesting public resources for corporate profits, and in the menhaden fishery example, it is happening right now.
