It's Friday, it's fish...

One of the things I meant to do this summer but didn't, was to visit Lundy Island. It's top of next year's list now, especially if I can do the diving with seals at the same time. This report on its No Take Zone is timely, given the Marine Bill that was confirmed in the Queen's Speech. I like the idea of voluntary, community-led No Take Zones, but we need the right legislative framework in place to support them too.

Yeah, do that before reading the Times article or having the slightest idea what you're talking about.

I still don't think Old Holborn understands that children cant vote

(51 million people didnt vote for New Labour)

Kerry, it's fine to disagree with OH, but perhaps pointing out the flaws in his thinking might be marginally more effective that abuse.

No catch zones DO work and that is one area where you shouldn't namby-pamby about with "community led" arsing around.
Put out marker buoys and anybody fishing inside them loses their boat.
No need for expensive "frameworks" and "community led" shit.
(and I DO know what I am talking about as I briefly worked both in fishing and in helping set up no-fishing zones abroad)
