Not sure if anyone has been watching this show but i was watching it last night when the Navy with fisheries officers boarded a French trawler in English waters, they looked at the log book of the different species caught eg Monk Fish, Gurnard, and a few others and weighed them to see if they matched, the guy was saying that each boat gets 20% cushion either side of what was written in the log book, on Monk Fish alone the trawler had stated that it had 50 kilos in the hold and when weighed it was 112% over the recorded amount something like 220kg against the stated 50kg..............and his excuse.......they didi not have a scales on board to measure the amounts......are you f**king kidding me????? No wonder fish stocks are being destroyed if this is the attitude of certain trawlers......makes my blood boil :evil::evil::evil::evil::evil::evil:.............rant over.
