Cautionary fish tale from Australia's Great Barrier Reef marine reserve.
It contains a link to the original article, which is not open-access, but
the abstract is open-access. The web page gives the email address of the
Fletcher, et al. 2015. Large-scale expansion of no-take closures within
the Great Barrier Reef has not enhanced fishery production. Ecological
(My understanding is that the expansion of no-take areas in the GBR was not
done to try to enhance fishery production, but rather for conservation
purposes. Further, the income to Australia from tourism to the GBR is far
larger than income from fisheries on the GBR. The article reports that the
loss of fishery income which the closure produced was more than expected.
If I got it right, Australia pays compensation to fishers that lost
income. The larger loss of fishery income is thought to be because the
fish and prawns were not overfished before closure.)

"belief in climate change is optional, participation is not."
belief in evolution is optional, use of antibiotics that bacteria have not
evolved resistance to is recommended.
In the past, putting fluoride in the city water was said by some to be a
communist plot, but today it is in most city water and helps reduce the
number of tooth cavities.
A survey of the U.S. public and scientists found that 86% of scientists say
children should get immunized, while 68% of the public agrees. 87% of
scientists say humans are the primary cause of global warming, but just 50%
of the public agrees. 98% of scientists say humans have evolved, but only
65% of the public agrees.
