Sustaining the Fish involves an effort to save a critical but endangered natural resource. Can the parties find a way to establish a "sustainable" fish supply when there is so much at stake and so little trust of each other? This game represents a classic conflict between science and the working person whose livelihood and entire culture are in jeopardy? Can they find a constructive way to talk to each other in order to save this valuable resource or are they doomed by their inability to work with each other to solve this shared problem? The players include the scientist, the small dragger commercial fisher, the small gillnetter commercial fisher, the large commercial fisher, the mayor of the fishing community, the canner, the Senator, and the environmentalist.
