: Yeah, the Georges Bank fisheries is a good example of government mismanagement. There is no reason in the world for private fisherman to conserve what they do not own. There is only one priority; get the most fish out of the fishing grounds before your competitors do.
: Turn it over to private corporations, let them hire security to protect their investment and watch the resources increase instead of decrease.
: There is no reason not to believe that the same thing couldn't happen in other industries.
This is the way the theory goes but if you look here you'll see that that's not the way it works. The ranchers destroying the rain forest for grazing land for beef do not protect what they own, they use it up and buy more. This is one of the major problems facing the world and its future, and capitalism (private ownership of land) is what is causing it.
