Latest talk from #EurOcean2014 - fishing needs this to happen!

The summary slides from Jeff A Ardron's talk from EurOcean2014 - all right-on words on the PowerPoint slides...

but as one conference attendee noted much the same agenda summary was in evidence 30 years ago - he expressed a desire to move things forward in a much more dynamic and groundbreaking way and received warm applause. The fishing industry is well able to adapt and change quickly - much more so than the legislative umbrella of governance under whose rules it operates - eg the mis-match between quotas and stocks and the difficulty of implementing what seem to be 'good ideas' eg ending discards.

Co-ordination, communication and co-operation being the most popular 'c' words used today.
