Though obviously the story doesn't depict an actual situation : fishing is a hard job that has crappy wages and as much as it is a useful job, I wouldn't want to do that for a living.
BUT that really is besides the point. The point of the story is to show that pursuing money for money is just a vain thing (which is exactly what the business man is doing).
Also from a realistic point of view the crappy situation in which fishermen (and really most workers) currently are is mostly due to those people wanting to earn more and more every day and squeezing every penny they can out of everybody they know (and even from the people they don't know) so it can become so. Bottom line is : the world would be a better place without businessmen and entrepreneurs...
