Has anybody heard about the proposed legislation for an exclusion of commercial fishing - 1 mile from shore........??? Is there any truth in this rumor?
Even if it does Chris it won't happen here.The Squid said:I think it is to good to be true, but wish it would happen.
You have got that right Steve.steve mullins said:Trouble is it might push more commercials into targeting them on there offshore breeding grounds where theres a lot more damage done.
You can see the inshore commercials so there easy to moan about.Why o why dont people put as many moans into the mass slaughter that goes on every Jan,Feb,March by the offshore trawlers.If you push more commercials outside the 1 mile they might find where the big concentrations are,then it wont matter if theres a 1 mile ban coz there won't be any fish to come in.
Now you might understand why it's so hard down here.heath birchenough said:I could imagine wat fishing would be like if this golden mile restriction was imposed.I remember this being brought up 1 or 2 years ago. have recently heard from a good friend of mine who vists alderney 2 or 3 times a year to lure fish for bass, he has just come back from a week stay and had 1 lure caught bass between 3 people . Apparently commercial netsmen have festooned the waters around the island within casting range and are taking up to 500 kilos a day many in the 7 to 10 llb bracket .How disturbing is that!.
