Another Twist From Mom Nature

Northern cod reclaiming its territory
"After being beaten down by overfishing to a fraction of the mighty force it once was, northern cod are starting to rebuild and re-populate its traditional areas off the coasts of Newfoundland and Labra­dor.

That’s good news for a species that has shown few positive signs of recovery during the 22 years since being placed under a moratorium.

George Rose, director of the Marine Institute’s Centre for Fisheries Ecosystems Research, said the centre’s latest research shows “a strong initial rebuilding” of the northern cod along the northeast coast of the province.

“After years and years of where it was flatlined, where nothing was happening, we are seeing strong signs of rebuilding now,” Rose said."
That sound you hear? It's environuts' heads exploding.
