This is a shame for Spain. The government ignores the European Union warnings and laws and name this illegal hunt as "traditional fishing methods". Actually the 90% of the hauling will be exported to Japan!

Actions like this by the Spanish government make me ashamed to be Spanish--Spain is ignoring what is right to do what will make quick cash--the short term gain winning over the long term one.

What a shame. Certainly doesn't make me want to support Spanish Tourism nor produce - nor recommend any of my friends and colleagues either! One of the very few ways to make any government listen through their pockets and their economy.
