EU Agrees To Throw More Fish Back

Its not exactly what is written in the headlines.

EU nations settle on new catch cuts for key species, seeking to assure their survival
But quotas are relevant for fish landed not caught. So tighter quotas just mean that more unwanted fish get throw overboard if they are caught. Which if they are already dead is hardly a conservation measure.

This annual meeting is a disgrace on a level with the 2001 foot-in-mouth disaster.

Millions of animals killed for no purpose in the name of inefficient bureaucracy.

Sick. Really sick, they will only stop when they have ruined the stocks permanently.
