New hook in swordfish tale: chefs boycott to save species

Nearly 40 restaurants are participating in a boycott of swordfish, responding to contentions made by environmental groups and federal marine authorities. The National Fisheries Institute, however, claims that the swordfish population is not in danger and that the boycott will hurt commercial fishermen.
Inspired by two environmental groups, 39 influential restaurants and culinary establishments are protesting the over-harvesting of swordfish by banning the species from their menus for at least a year.

Fishing trip: Canada’s markets luring investors

Canadian markets continue their upswing in 1998, despite a harsh winter. Performing impressively are the Montreal Exchange’s Bax futures and the Toronto Stock Exchange’s Toronto 35 Index futures. In 1997, the three-month Bax interest rate futures volumes leaped significantly in 1997 and Jan 1998, while average daily volumes in Toronto’s stock index futures have been on the rise since 1994, slipping only slightly in 1995. In 1997, the index increased its volume twofold.

Inside Passage to Vancouver; From Seattle to Skagway, this waterway passes towering glaciers, roaring waterfalls and hundreds of sheltered anchorages

The Inside Passage is a natural waterway stretching from the State of Washington to the Alaska Panhandle. For most of its length, however, it winds through Canadian waters, in the province of British Columbia. It is protected from the open Pacific by 300-mile-long Vancouver Island in its southern reaches, and by hundreds of smaller islands to the north. A cruise of this waterway will take you past some of the most spectacular scenery in the world: Endless miles of desolate shoreline provide countless sheltered anchorages, some nestled beneath towering glacial peaks, others guarded by roaring waterfalls, still others bordered by tranquil beaches. To the north, wild fowl, seals and otter abound; to the south, in areas like Campbell River, salmon fishing is unsurpassed.

Greece: tough adjustments that membership in the EC will bring should boost demand for high-tech products and services

Tough Adjustments That Membership in the EC Will Bring Should Boost Demand for High-Tech Products and Services

Since Greece’s initial association with the European Community in 1962, but especially since full EC accession in 1981, foreign competition in the Greek import market has been fierce. From a high of 8.4 percent in 1980, the U.S. share of Greek imports declined steadily to under 3 percent in 1987. Total U.S. exports to Greece have been on the decline since 1980, falling-with some minor year-to-year upward fluctuations-from the $922 million peak in 1980 to $402 million in 1987. These figures are misleading, however, because they do not include imports into Greece from wholly-owned American subsidiaries in Europe.
