  1. Hi Elton, Didn't see a link to the original research, or at least one the common people have access to. Exeter University is not known for its expertise on the marine environment but hey what do i know. Chris
  2. Hard to make out what's the latter these days. Reads like number 1. then..
  3. Not sure how I explain the meaning of " veritable " to my son, and not sure why it would be a good thing to do so.. Suspect he will make up his own mind based on what he experiences. Doubt he will end up loving the quango garbage some wish to push as real though.
  4. Did not take too long for the Salmon farming industry to produce monster parasites that walk on two legs.
  5. Your not serious Leon? Abandon Science, Law and history for a backpackers take? Chris
  6. Aww Bambi, Seahorses, turtles, CuteCute , now we have Bernard the Gurnard
  7. Another parasite given loadsamoney to prey on young people (intended to say "market to" but it came out wrong), lobby for their qualifications to be a necessary requirement before anyone gets near a fish, drive cozy relationships and provide cheap semi trained staff to the big retail chains and marketing industries. Wonderful on every level somewhere no doubt. My local college runs a course on preparing for a career in the uniformed services. How fantastic is that! The young are being robbed blind by characters their olds will have seen time and time again. Just an opini
  8. Water is the most basic of "rights" throughout human history. A few greedy sods are working out how to turn it into a commodity to be traded internationally and further impoverish their friends and family as they "head for the high ground". Only a well paid clown would cede water to some well meaning body.
  9. Thanks for the link Elton. I'd take it further than the author though: From what I've seen they have been willing to participate in the destruction of scientific methodology for a "quick buck", or too sidestep any questioning of their deeply held religious philosophy. Elton, I've prob been a bit of a pain in the neck for you over the last few years but you have no idea how scary I found some of the output from the anti fishfarming reps and just how upside down the world was becoming when once respected scientific journals started publishing advertising instead of scienc
  10. Whats the Norwegian definition of a "Commercial" btw ?
  11. Had a few beers from hypothetical friends and family whatever the catch. Nice seeing the reactions when they taste fresh caught mackerel for the first time though;) Your way ahead of me on the "US"; never knew its laws were all the same and stupidly thought it was a huge continent with states and differences..
  12. Suppose I go out using my pitiful paddle power and catch a box of cod, get bored and its extreme low tide, so head back in and rack around some low tide lobster hot-spots, then split the spoils between friends and family? Am i commercial or hobby?
  13. If I set out on my kayak and set a couple of portable shellfish creels am I using "commercial" techniques?
  14. Dr Pauly is a "darling" of the media atm and has been for the last few years, just like Boris Worm and Prof Callum Roberts. As far as i know not one of them is a actually a fisheries scientist and all have been financed by PEW . Anyone else know anything different?
  15. The report or the fact that one of our "heavyweight" papers shows just how low its sunk. Aw Nemo
