Every year many cuttlefish are caught when they come in to breed. The practice is depleting the stock of cuttlefish in the area as they are prevented from breeding.

A petition has been started to bring this to the attention of the UK government and UK residents can sign up at

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/cuttlefish/

Closing date is 16th March 2008 so don't hang about.

A VERY good cause - Alan Mildren's DVD is a very good conservationists view of the Cuttlefish at Babbacombe - see http://www.marinevisionstudios.com/ if you are interested - well worth getting hold of a copy!
