Dark Matter, Fisheries, and Non-Governmental Organizations

Dark Matter, Fisheries, and Non-Governmental Organizations | Maritime security | Scoop.it
As demonstrated by many contemporary cases - science fiction can become
reality. In the Canadian television series Dark Matter, both governments
and corporations own warships. They also employ mercenaries in a
never-ending quest for strategic resources and advantages over their
competitors. During the first season, corporate-funded gangs and other
proxy combatants battle one another, while state-on-state conflict is
simply non-existent or omitted. This concept is not confined to the
imagination of science fiction writers; for the past decade, maritime
non-governmental organizations, private maritime security companies and
fishing corporations have engaged one another on the high seas.  The South
China Sea is ripe for a clash not of civilizations, but of fishing fleets
and other state-sponsored surrogates.
