"It's important to speak up."
"If you know something that's important for conservation or policy,whether it's improving the lives of fishermen or saving the lives ofsharks . . . you say it clearly and carefully," Mr. Myers said in aninterview after the session."You're irresponsible not to," he said, pointing to the collapse ofthe northern cod stocks as a dangerous example of what happens whenpeople aren't properly informed. "There was virtually no one from theuniversities or government speaking up. It's important to speak up."
