Fishing Spree?

Recommended Posts

A dozen or so small trawlers fishing about a mile outside PSM breakwater first thing this morning, what would they be catching? They were all grouped fairly close together.

There is an article here at the Guardian today about the new Isle of Man scallop regulations.

 

Intensive overfishing by massive trawlers around the Isle of Man is threatening the marine ecosystem. A flotilla of huge vessels sails in for two weeks every November, takes the cream of the crop and then disappears for 50 weeks until the start of the next scallop season.

The Scottish fisheries minister, Richard Lochhead, has called it a "war" against Scots.

 

Excellent. When do we start?

Your mum.

 

Anigav, unfortunately she died from cancer in 1996, do you normally post such offensive content?

 

How can you call that offensive, when Anigav obviously didnt know about your mum? And why do you feel it necessary to tell him/her what your mother died of, surely just telling them she was no longer with us would have been enough or are you looking to upset them or cause a row!!!!
