The destructive power of the super trawler

News from the Celtic League:

I have documented at length the impact of industrial fishing from Senegal in West Africa to Scandinavia.

Large trawlers literally vacuum the fish sticks in these areas and some of them have the capacity to process hundreds of tonnes of fish per day – they are in effect floating factories.

Bugaled Breizh - New information on submarine activity should open way to new French investigation

The Breton trawler Bugaled Breizh sank on January 15, 2004, off Cape Lizard Cornwall, with the loss of the five crew on board. The loss of the Bugaled Breizh remains unresolved with the Breton sailors having a good knowledge of the area in which they were fishing, the ship having apparently sank very quickly, in good weather conditions, no life-raft was launched, and the distress signal was brief, without giving the coordinates. This tragedy appeared similar to other incidents involving fishing vessels that have occurred in the seas around the Celtic coasts.
