Neat little presentation, especially the quotas on NBT being overfished by at lest 6/7 times what science says would be reasonable...corruption will make Europe implode sooner or later.

Also the fact about farmed fish...I always believed that farms aren't necessary, when people manage their countries fisheries correctly- International waters should be off limits or maritime borders extended into each other so there are no international waters.

The trawler thing seems ambiguous, some operators would do much better the 9:1 catch rates- but certainly not the huge rigs. It's easy to stop trawlers, with sunken concrete snag devises in off limits areas- nets aren't cheap!
