    Are the Danish fishing fleet out of control.

    it won't mess up fish stocks THEY ALREADY ARE our home fishing fleet has long gone and i don't remember it as large or intrusive as our combined european partners are we i agree bear some responsibility for the present situation but a holiday in a fishing town/harbour/village and you won't see many or any offshore boats. i am 82 and 60 yrs ago as crew fished out of Coverack, NOT ANY MORE i don't even know the boat owners. the harbour is now filled with small pleasure craft the fishing community is no more. the social club on the harbour wall gone. Lifeboat gone (no crew) Their fishing grounds off the Lizard and into the channel are gone and they weren't fished out by locals. our non local fishermen friends haven't just destroyed the grounds they have decimated the local population. I went down to mudeford quay the other day and only knew 3 fishermen. i remember the quay with local boats tied up for most of its length. I was the lifeboat cox/helm from 1970 to1985 and only met 2 old crew i knew. I do really wish you & all who go to sea well. Derek

    Breaking news

    Brian I think i might know one but no longer being involved in SAR there is nothing i can do Derek
  13. Here we go again !!!!!! page 6 tonights echo fisheries officers caught another boat this time with undersized clams on board the problem is while they where checking some clams and finding undersized shell fish he threw the rest of his catch over the side . now i might come across as a bit slow,{its old age} but thick i am not. what the hell was going on on board that allowed that to happen maybe the fisheries people where grabbing a quick sarny and a cup of tea the mind boggles!!! result Bmth Mag ct a fine and costs less than 500quid Now question is he a permit holder for the Poole harbour Manila clam fishery so will he be keeping it . If not he is just a common thief so why wasn't this one prosecuted by the police/public prosecutors or where they all having a well deserved tea break NOT Grumpy old Derek how about having a club visit from police & fisheries to explain what the hell is so good about their tea.

    Southern IFCA Prosecute Fisherman

    A relevant point in law is that if you drive an uninsured motor vehicle or one that is a condition unfit to drive you can lose it to a scrapyard crusher a shame we don't have the same type of legislation for marine craft and as you all know there is plenty of idiots and others out there who would qualify. What i don't understand is why the justices did not launch both cases straight to Crown Ct on an endangering life charge the way they were behaving with their boats Coddy if the courts in these cases could make a destruction order it would not matter if the boats where in the tower of London or locked up in a Buckingham palace garage. Derek HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
