These guys are just idiotic!

I truly cannot believe the EU actually pressed hard against measures to conserve stocks of bluefin tuna in the Med. Are they out of their tiny minds? What on earth possessed them to oppose this? Just stupid, stupid, stupid! The single most important aspect of the proposal would just have banned tuna fishing for a couple of months to give them a chance to spawn. How hard is it to work out that if you massacre them while they're spawning, you pretty soon won't have a tuna fishing industry. Bleugh! I just want to spit!

Greedy - We have never managed to effectively manage anything to do with fishing or the seas and oceans in my opinion. By the time any "useful"scientific data has been gathered it will be too late.... a classic example of this as far as I can tell is:

Coastal wind farms are objected to by local farmers, who will no longer be allowed to fish in the surrounding areas... but as far as we can tell, fisheries close to existing, similar excluded areas experience revitalisation as a result of the no fishing zone which spills out into surrounding areas.....

Seems to make sense to me.... and I think that's where the problem lies.....

If it makes sense, then it's got no place in Europe!!
