Slaughter of the innocents

This morning, The Daily Telegraph carries our story on the slaughter of juvenile plaice in the Irish Sea by Fleetwood fishermen. They have been forced by EU law to use 80mm net mesh instead of the preferred 110mm – which lets the juvenile fish escape – on pain of having their fishing days cut back to the point where they are driven out of business.
