A complete ban sounds a little too drastic. A reduction would be better. It's good that the income and cost of maintenance of boats would be covered for those who do stop fishing for some period of time. Thanks Kevin.

"...Claims that we are progressing towards sustainable fishing are the equivalent of saying that instead of driving a car over a cliff at 100mph we are driving it at 90mph..."

I am vegetarian but even I feel for the poor fishermen who will be denied an income. We need to find new ways of introducing work to these people while still stopping fishing.

One of the problems, in the UK at least, is our seeming unwillingness to try 'other' fish, we still tend to favour cod and haddock whereas if we were to eat more mackerel for instance the stocks of those fish under greatest threat would at least get a chance to recover. Things are changing but habits need to change a lot more quickly.

I hope the fishers would find another source of income while their actions now stopped. I'm also a vegetarian and a bit pity about them. And I hope the decision makers have provided the place for them to have income. If they didn't, I think it'll be useless after this. Because they will try to fish more because they may gain no income while this prohibition to fish. They will try to find more money to replace and well, after that, the habit may become worse.

Thanks for sharing.

At this point, with so much damage to the environment (some irreversible) drastic measures are needed I believe. It is time to begin paying humans acts and face the consequenses!
