I see the Welsh Assembly have banned all commercials boats with 150 vcu,s from fishing South Wales inshore waters, and all 12 mtr boats in north wales can not fish inside the 6 mile limt, fishing is banned with immediate effect in the 3 mile limt,and the six mile limt from April next year, and the commercials are saying that the Assembly is pandering to "a noisy angling lobby in South Wales" and they will be looking at the mussel dredgers as well.

If that is a true report (cuz you never know on here ) it's a step in the right direction IMO.

Anyone see the report of the Cod survey where no fish were caught above 13years old?
Doomsday coming for the species quicker than everyone thought it seems.

Trust me Mick B it is true, it is also in the public domain, if you read the right trade media.

The media reports, which stated there were ‘only 100 adult cod in the North Sea’, are a prime example of the ‘cherry picking of facts’, according to Bertie Armstrong, chief executive of the SFF.

The media was reporting on scientific research by Cefas, the government fisheries laboratory, which from catch analysis found not a single cod over the age of 13 and that there could fewer than 100 such fish left in the North Sea.

Bertie Armstrong said: “This is a classic example of the cherry picking of the facts without providing a balanced report on the true situation. According to current scientific research, the stock is showing clear signs of recovery in that the spawning stock biomass is increasing and fishing morality is decreasing. It is unfortunate that some see fit to place undue focus on certain work.

“Cod mature and spawn well before the age of 13 and so are therefore contributing to the stock biomass on an annual basis. There has obviously been an attempt to give the impression that there are few mature fish left.  However, maturity is directly related to both age and size and it is recognised that most cod of 4 -5 years old are mature.”

This is borne out by other scientific research (Model of Growth and Maturity for North Sea Cod) that showed that 100% of 5-year old cod were mature, 82% of 4-year old cod were mature, and 30% of 3 year old cod were mature.

“The fact is that scientific research is showing that the cod stock is recovering, thanks in part to the pioneering efforts of our fishermen to launch a range of conservation initiatives, including technical alterations to fishing gear and real time area closures. Indeed, only recently our prawn fishermen and netmakers have developed trawls that have reduced fish discards by up to 70 per cent.

“The true situation is that our conservation efforts are helping North Sea cod to recover and secure a sustainable future for the stock.”


if you have to measure it, its too small!!

the media can suck my left nut. they have not got a clue. 100 cod left in the north sea over 110cm (28lb), load of cobblers, i reckon over 100 cod over 28lb get caught on the south coast each winter.

what about norway? how many lunkers do they get a year? excactly!

size is down to food supply, areas with lesser food supply mean smaller fish no matter what age. 
so in theory a 13yr old cod could be 10lb as easy as 50lb depending on where it lives.

I agree with you hugh, i woulnd not start a bonfire with the news papers of today, the media i was refering to is the "Fishing News" it is a paper for the Commercial fishing industry since 1913, before people start knocking it buy a copy its out every Thursdays, and read it some may not understand it, ive been buying it for years but some of it sometimes does concern the sport angler,

this fact also means the factory ships are doing so much damage for the future, as they are reducing the food chain supply
