OK guys, crucial vote tomorrow and if you want to "try" and protect our stocks then enter details in Hughes Fish Fight site to send MEPs emails.

UK server has just crashed under the load, but please don't sit around and moan, do something.

Really? You think throwing a ton of Cod away (dead) because you have filled your quota works?

In Norway discards are illegal, they have one of the best managed seas policies around, but then Norway isn't in the EU so it could be any one of those two factors giving them the edge.

Followed and supported Fish Fight since it was launched.

Sean before the discards were bought in cod. Stocks were decreasing since the discards there increasing. Trawlers and scientist. Both agree this I know it looks terrible. But if its working then why. Change it

But was that the discards or the aggressive quotas? also our fleet is a fraction of the size.The discards go back and die or are already dead. One of the proposed changes KEEPS the quotes, but deals with discards in a way that doesn't see them thrown back to rot.

I think a lot of it is down to trust. Do you really trust the eu trawler fleet to stick to quotas it's not just. Us.
