    Fishing Bans

    "The Philippines and China will both impose fishing bans in the South China Sea where the two countries have been involved in a tense territorial standoff.

    China had already announced its annual ban, which it says is aimed at curbing over-fishing, and includes the waters around the disputed Scarborough Shoal.

    The Philippines Monday refused to recognize China's measure, which runs from May 16 to August 1, as it encompasses waters it considers as its own".

    Well, the Icelanders managed to see us off....and put virtually our whole Trawler fleet out of work.

    Of course all our so-called allies would give us their support wouldn't they...

    Yeah right.

    I remember the so called "Cod War" with Iceland back in 1970's

    I can't really recall all the detail, but Graham is right in that no-one would help or support us.
    The UK government eventually conceded and our fishing industry was never the same again.

    I remember cases of boats ramming each other and fishing nets being cut. Then naval ships on both sides got involved.

    Same principle then as China has done now, unilaterally declare extended territorial waters then impose a fishing ban.

    I was there in the so called good old days of fishing Iceland.
    Spend 21 days up there freezing your queer things off, and when you got home had to lay off Hull for hours dumping the catch over the side because there was too much cod on the market

    Now Birds Eye etc in Grimsby and Hull are packing the Cod that the Icelanders kindly sell to them.

    Our country has become nothing more than a service centre for foreign companies, whether it be food, cars, heavy industry or electronics.

    Lord help us if ever we had to stand on our own two feet again, because time after time it has been demonstrated that we have few friends in the world.

    "China continued to flex its maritime muscle by keeping 21 vessels and 76 other smaller boats at the disputed Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal while holding talks with Philippine officials to end the nearly seven-week tense standoff in the area, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said on Wednesday.

    Despite lingering tensions, DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said Manila remains "committed to efforts of defusing tensions" at the shoal.

    Based on a Philippine Coast Guard report as of 7:00 p.m. on Monday, the DFA said China has been keeping five Chinese government vessels at the shoal: CMS 71, CMS 84, FLEC 301, 303 and 310.

    According to Hernandez, the vessels were accompanied by 16 Chinese fishing boats, 10 of which were inside the lagoon while six were outside.

    There were 56 utility boats — 27 inside lagoon and 29 were outside, the DFA said.

    Hernandez said China has been conducting fishing in the area and continued to harvest endangered species amid a fishing ban imposed by Beijing over the shoal on May 16.

    “The increase in the number of China’s vessels in the area imperils marine biodiversity in the shoal and threatens the marine ecosystem in the whole of the WPS,” Hernandez told a press briefing.

    He said the Chinese fishermen were said to have “unlawfully dredged the area and illegally harvested giant clams and corals.”

    There's a point.

    If the Chinese take over the planet there'll be no blinkin wildlife left....except for a few useless Pandas.

    It will either all have been eaten, or ground down into 'medicine'.
