6 December 2019 will certainly enter the history books as the date that sustainable fishing ended. On this day, the final wild cod farm in the Gulf of Alaska closed. US biologists declared that the Pacific cod population is too small to guarantee species reproduction. This closure is emblematic, as if there were a place worldwide where human ingenuity and millions of US dollars have managed to create a haven of sustainable fishing, it was the Gulf of Alaska. Strictly sustainable farming flourished there after the Canadian government banned cod fishing in the same Gulf in 1992, but several thousand kilometres from Alaska, due to overfishing.
