poor things …

Why such destruction? Is this a so-termed bycatch? A most heinous waste. For years in the UK we have suffered as European fishing fleets took what was for centuries regarded as the entitlement of UK fishermen. To fishing ports along the UK coast the EU symbolises utter insanity, likewise the up till now EU regard to bycatch.

Practicality and common sense was never a strong point for the EU.

Its looking to me that fishermen seem always inclined to reap and then rape the seas of its bounty, witness the falling fish stocks around the world, Grand Banks, North Sea etc. Desperate for catch, unable to leave it alone. Can we say that this is fuelled by a desire to conform to a continual desire for growth? theres a lot to be said for keeping things local, low key, modest. It is this conventional (is it termed The Classical Economic model) standard western economic model that is in part leading to our demise. A term never used these days is ‘the consumer society’ yet all around me i see neighbours hooked in to wanting more, bigger and better when often ‘more modest’ would be sufficient. No wonder its so easy with advertising to catch sales for whatever new toy, holiday, villa abroad, gizmo or SUV is becoming available.
