The Hungry Chinese

Timothy Birdnow

This shows China has major vulnerabilities

. And that China is the world's main exploiter.

"According to the report, Six Chinese supertrawlers have arrived in the country, capable of taking over 12,000 tonnes of fish a year - nearly twice the nation's sustainable catch”....
"The shrimp fishery in Liberia, based mainly on P. notialis, P. Atlantica, P. longirostris, P. kerathurus, and P. monodon was one of the first successfully established in West Africa. An economic analysis of the fishery undertaken by the International Finance Corporation in 2015 suggests optimal catch rates per vessel is 70 tons of shrimp per season, for vessels of 350 hp.”

The ability to produce enough food is critical to maintaining an industrial economy. Japan concentrated on food production first when they industrialized, and it worked. Other nations aimed for industry first and failed. As long as China can stay ahead of starvation they will pose a threat, but how long will that be? If we don't prop them up they will eventually implode, in my humble opinion.
