Smell the coffee ?

In a recent meeting one of the catching sector representatives came out with the following :

“In the fishing industry there is considerable antagonism towards environmentalists, NGOs and the general environmental lobby. That is neither supportable nor appropriate, with the marine bills coming up and just the general changed view of the public”

What next ?

Will sustainable exploitation really get on the agenda ? Will the inefficient practices that discard hundreds of millions of fish in Scottish waters change ? Will politicians take courageous decisions ?

Perhaps too much to expect whilst there’s still prawns in the sea.
