Dr. Jacques has recently published a paper in Marine Policy which shows it is theoretically plausible that fisheries are a interconnected system.The paper has been made open access so anyone may read it.here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0308597X1400325X

If they are a single complex system, it follows that this system could collapse following systemic disturbance.  See the audio explanation here.
