Not the Babylon Bee, almost as funny as a James Lindsay hoax paper.

From art to religion to land use, much of what is deemed valuable in the United States was shaped centuries ago by the white male perspective. Fish, it turns out, are no exception.

A study published in Fisheries Magazine, a journal of the American Fisheries Society, explores how colonialist attitudes toward native fishes were rooted in elements of racism and sexism. It describes how those attitudes continue to shape fisheries management today, often to the detriment of native fishes.

I don't see the sexism, but I am not so sure this isn't a legit POV on which fish we prioritize and which we don't.

This says more about the fools that decide what is important to academia than it does
anything else. Brilliant satire defeats pompous academic gullibility.
