This audio piece is a podcast episode of a discussion between FRAUD and Liam Campling which focuses on modes of maritime extraction that continue legacies of colonial rule. Together they explore some of the legal and economic infrastructures that support and perpetuate fishery extraction, such as Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs), and Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY), based on Campling’s book, co-authored with Alejandro Colás, Capitalism and the Sea: the Maritime Factor in the Making of the Modern World.
