Shetland Times will be worth a read this week. Bob can you get the ST down your way, or do you need to order it in?
What I'd like to know is exactly what happens in the way of checks in Denmark. In Ullapool and Lerwick every vessel used to have to have its tanks dipped before they landed a thing.
If the Altaire has been expoliting a big loophole then others will have been for sure. Might explain why the North Sea Mackeral has never recovered.
Fatcats is a fair description in this case. Goes back to the ownership of the resource again, with almost all pelagic stocks being centralised by quotas into the hands of a very few . Its out and out greed because they already have a guaranteed licence to print money.
