    If this stops bottom trawling in protected areas good for them. I personally think fishing needs to be much more sustainable.

    They were threatening to do it on the Dogger Bank - utterly pointless as they'd just have sunk into the sand like everything else does.

    I'm never sure what people mean by 'sustainable' in this context. You could have 10,000s small boats hand lining and strip out all the coastal waters to feed the UK population. Small boats are often used as sustainable examples, but what is really meant is 'they catch less and go out less'. You could have larger nets which may create runt populations. I'd like to see no catch to create animal feeds etc. That would be a start. Then how do people feed their pets? Etc. It will be a mess until there's little or no market for the fish.

    I wonder how Greenpeace feel about the unlicensed (by MMO) dumping of materials in protected areas?

    How would people feed their pets? I think a certain lady in Suffolk just preys on canvassers, politicians, jehovah witnesses and anyone else who knocks on the door.

    Nobody ever knocks on the bloody door, that's why I have to hunt down anyone who annoys me on the internet.
