But the reality is that these actions are a desperate response from the island's people. There are contributing factors. For example, there's the decline of basic staples, due to an unresloved economic crisis resulting from a socialist system that represses private initiative, or allows it narrowly. After his timid reforms, General Raul Castro prevented the abundance of fish from fresh and marine waters of the island to pass from the rivers and seas to the tables of the island's consumers.

But Raul Castro's government has tried to change things with rationalism and repression. In 2013, according to official figures, 1,696 boats and 160.8 kilometers of massive fishing nets were seized , along with several hundred kilograms of marine and terrestrial species, including turtles and crocodile meat, which are supposedly endangered species.

Several thousand kilograms of edible fish species such as snapper and grouper were also seized.

This is socialism, boys and girls...it sucks!
