Although welcoming a provision that allows for upgrading protection levels in many areas, WWF is disappointed that zones closed to commercial fishing are not also closed to recreational fishing.

 Top Professional Bankruptcy Experts and Legal Witnesses
The primary purpose of the laws of bankruptcy are: (1) to give an honest debtor a fresh start in life by relieving the debtor of most debts, and (2) to repay creditors in an orderly manner to the extent that the debtor has the means available for payment.
Additionally the declaration of bankruptcy allows debtors to be discharged of most of the financial obligations, after their non-exempt assets are distributed, even if their debts have not been paid in full.
During the pendency of a bankruptcy proceeding, the debtor is protected from extra-bankruptcy action by creditors by a legally imposed stay.
