    Default Anglers Condemn Fishing Industry’s Disregard For Discards and Government’s Meagre Monitoring

    Issued by the Angling Trust:

    Just six months after the EU Landings Obligation (commonly known as the ‘discard ban’) came fully into force across Europe and a House of Lords committee has already heavily criticised the UK government for failing to enforce the ban which was introduced to eliminate the practice of throwing dead fish back to sea.

    the American system each boat lands everything and it counts towards the quota, when the quota is reached the boat ties up 'til the next quota period, it made the American fishermen increase the codend size so the now don't catch under size fish, I can't understand why that wasn't tried

    Typical UK disregard for the EU quota rules(Oh there's plenty of cod and haddock in the north sea,NOT) I used to be astounded when Conservation Quotas were Questioned and even ridiculed.If there was 1 fish left in the sea these guys would scoop it up(and probably boast about it)What they are doing is not sustainable.Most of the Cod/Haddock we eat comes from Iceland(remember them,they went to war to protect their fish stocks)
