Wurzel, et al ...
you are not completely non-compos mentis; but you must have seen 'some signs'.
Perhaps I should have told you to watch More4 tonight and see 'End of the Line' over and over!!!!
... blah, blah .....
Newfoundlanders were 40k unemployed in '92 because of overfishing (doesn't matter by whom!).
Senagalese fishermen are swarming to Europe because their 3 mile limit has been invaded by Spaniards and Frenchies.
You lot cannot deny the lack of soles and plaice off Suffolk/Essex beaches.
Even with your 'friendly' leetle tangles/gillers and trammels, eh?
Look, mate, don't ask ME to comment on 'bad press' for industrialised fishing.
Keep up to speed, OK?
The scrappage fund should apply to all registered fishing boats; get a nice taxi and a proper job.
And stop stirring up yer bottom!
I could not watch End of The Line, I would be so wound up I would not sleep for a week.
One day it will be proved that over fishing had nothing much to do with what happened to the Newfounderlanders in 92 or at any other time when the cod fishing collapsed as it did so several times in the past 500 years.
Must be plenty of fish of the Senegalese coast if it can support French and Spanish boats.
I can very much deny the lack of soles of the Suffolk and Essex coast we've had as good a season as any.
Not aware of any problem with the plaice stock other than it seems to have moved north a bit where boats are having record catches.
It seems industrial fish stocks are also in good health with boats having no trouble catching their large quotas.
What Scappage fund?
It's you Ha along with the likes of Charles bloody Cover that need to keep up to speed and either come up with some creditable evidence or shut up.
