Fishing Disaster for Guernsey

Jul 18,2007 SACN

In the past Guernsey has been a mecca for anglers, bringing many thousands of pounds to the island's economy, fuelling business opportunities and supporting the livelihoods of local people.

In recent years, there has been considerable concern about the amount of bass being taken from Guernsey waters, but now an even bigger disaster is unfolding for the island's important Recreational Sea Fishery.

"DOLPHINS are at risk now a Privy Council ruling has left Guernsey’s three- to 12-mile zone the only unregulated fishery in Europe........

......There is a fleet of UK scallopers here already and more coming and many vessels have already enquired about coming here to fish bass this winter."

Full Report in The Guernsey Press

The SACN's Regional Co-ordinator for the Channel Islands says "The west coast at night looks like Picadilly Circus".
