"Fishers declare emergency in English Channel and Southern North Sea with Greenpeace"


"Fishers along the south and east coasts have had their livelihoods devastated after years of unchecked industrial fishing by pulse trawlers, supertrawlers and fly-shooters. This has severely depleted fish populations, particularly in inshore waters, leaving some local fishers with nothing left to catch. Less than one third of key UK fish populations are in a healthy state"

“Fishing communities, anglers, charter skippers and environmental groups alike support these measures which will be an important step towards fully protecting at least 30% of our oceans by 2030. We hope that by coming together to fight for the same thing, our government will finally start taking practical steps towards delivering this goal. If these requests are ignored, it’s clear that ministers are siding with the multinational fishing companies who are wrecking our oceans, instead of the local fishers who are the backbone of our coastal communities.”

Isn't this a case of horse bolted quick lock the gate. By the time anything gets done if it gets done it will be to late anyhow. The powers that be have got have a debate and numerous meetings first just to agree on a venue for said first meeting. :unsure: :rolleyes:

No, there is plenty that can be done to improve our fisheries.
