    It is a seabed grab…Proof is that there is no planned exit strategy..Dead or alive,their windmills get to stay as it is “their”seabed lease.

    I hope people actually take the time to read Jim Lovgren’s article where he asks compelling questions that command answers, and discussion. Jim writes in his fellow fisherman’s behalf, and I’m wondering if the ones that know him will actually comment on his article here. We’ll see.
