This whole thread reminds me of the long going battle between backpackers and mountain bike riders. Both use the same trails, but there is a bitter feud between the two. Or you can even compare it to two kids in a sandbox. Bickering about whose corner is whose.

Notice how non-hunter/gatherer automatically assumes that a missing fish or form of marinelife. Was taken by a spearfisherman or fisherman, not by a bigger fish or a marine mammal ;-)

Although I sometimes spearfish and fish. It is in a enviroment that can support the endeavor. Coastal waters in Southern California and around Monterey have been overfished and need time to recover. A hunter has a responability to know their prey and the rules of taking that prey. Before the hunt regardless of the enviroment, land or sea.
