    Once we had lost the cod fishery on Canada's east coast, we came to realize that we just can't keep fishing forever, regardless of the size of the boat. We need a lot more work on farmed fish. What we're doing now would be like McDonalds hunting wild buffalo for the Big Mac.

    But we are trying sustainable commercial fishing from the british coastline. We abide by the quotas that are given to us. What is the point when these guys come swoop up by the thousand of tonnes and devastate the sea bottom bloody regardless of the consequences! ������

    Equivalent of dragging a net across the Serengeti, scooping up zebras, lions, elephants, etc. etc. just to catch some cows. Sustainable fishing has a definite role in the future but really most of us just need to switch to a plant based diet sooner rather than later and eat meat/fish sparingly, if at all.

    Farmed fish are not the easy answer, as long as they are being fed a diet of fish meal, made from small fish that are not caught for human consumption, but are a vital part of the food chain.

    They are bound by quota too when in EU waters, trouble is that so many British quota owners have sold their rights to them.

    Anyway, this shouldn't be allowed on international waters either, just like piracy.

    It is unlikely that the EU will do anything about trawling .It won't bring any votes and the fishing lobbyists are strong on influence
    The only way is for us consumers not to eat fish. Have done this for many years with no problems.

    Tell that to the Spanish. Isn’t that where most of our fish goes?
    Pardon?
