EU Fisheries: Two Views

Two interesting blog posts written in response to the recent publication of the European Commission's Green paper: Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.

One critical post (here) written by Bruno Waterfield of the Daily Telegraph. The second more supportive (here), written by Peter Sain ley Berry over at the EU Observer. These two views are not necessarily mutually exclusive - both men make some very valid points.

Fisheries is something I really want to read up on, as something is currently going very wrong in our seas. If we're not careful, the fishing industry will be destroyed and fish stocks will collapse.

I might consider blogging on this, if only to force myself to read up on it!
