The Irish have started THE REVOLUTION AGAINST DISCARDS – REFUSE TO DUMP FISH – LAND THEM FOR CHARITY!!!!!

WOW!! THE REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN! US FISHERMEN, YOUR IRISH BROTHERS HAVE STUCK IT UP MANAGEMENTS ASSES!! WILL YOU FOLLOW?

October 8, 2012 — Michael O’Flaherty, one of the owners of the boat said: “We’re being asked to operate under a farcical system. They want us to dump about 5 tons of dead monkfish back into the sea. But enough is enough. We’re not doing it anymore, we’re going to show people what we’re being asked to do.”
A group of Wexford fishermen at sea for the last five days has said today that the fishermen will no longer abide by EU regulations to dump fish back into the ocean if they go over quota. The crew, which harbored last night, was watched over by a member of An Garda Siochana at Kilmore Quay before representatives from the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority arrived this morning to investigate the situation. Shortly after 11 a.m. the fishermen began to unload their catch into a waiting van, depositing the fish which exceeded the quota on the quay, a move which prompted a large crowd of locals to come and avail of free fish.

    Between you'n me, I started fisheryworld.com, but then I stripped it to try to build a static site instead of a blog.
    This way, features stay on the front page where you put them
    Kinda like the Herald front page.
    I'm ready to bring one more on and it will be the place for a lot of different groups.

  • Thanks for sharing this one! Maybe we will need an int'l category soon. United we stand, divided we fall!
