One of the questions asked by WDF in Fish Bio interviews in the late 70s/early 80s was along the lines of "If you know a stock needs protection and you know that the next manager in line will not be properly protecting it, what kind of fisheries should you schedule?"

The desired answer was that you would not fish on a stock needing protection even if the later-in-line managers overfished.

Should be noted that the test questions were (at that time) designed by the bios and not by the politician/managers.
