the dutch have done immense harm to fish stocks by bottom-hoovering which removes everything from sea bottom–the “catch” is used as land fertilizer
The sooner we get the EU out of our waters the better. This method of fishing will kill everything hit by the electrical discharge, all fish of all sizes and of course other animals such as sand eels which herring rely upon. Links in food chains could be broken which could lead to serious damage and even total breakdown of the entire ecosystem. Still the EU knows best doesn’t it?
