The Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC), with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), has released a report into the use of drugs and alcohol by workers in Australia's farming and fishing industries... The report, based on data gathered from grain, sugar, cotton and fishing industry sites in New South Wales and Victoria, was commissioned to raise awareness of the scope of drug and alcohol use by farming and fishing employees and the impact of that use on the workplace and also on rural communities and families... The study's lead researcher, Dr Julaine Allan from Charles Sturt University's Centre for Inland Health, said 43 per cent of those taking part in the study were identified as risky drinkers who consumed large amounts of alcohol frequently.

The aim of my study is to analyze management plans and harvest strategies of some of the northern hemisphere lobster fisheries, by comparing the North American fishery that has stood the test of time and is at the moment having record catches, and the UK and Irish fisheries that are struggling to rebuild fish stocks...
