Inshore fisherman tracked across the Channel! #eatlessfish ;-)


Which canny inshore fisherman was tracked over the course of 282 days?  Not content with just fishing the inshore waters off Holland, Belgium and France but traversing the channel to fish the coasts of Kent, Essex, Suffolk and even as far north as Norfolk.

Was he English? Dutch? Belgian French? - this pirate of the Channel holds no passport and operates blissfully unaware of the CFPO's quotas for all the species that he catches and often discards all but the best part of the fish he catches despite fishing well inside the 12 mile limit of four EU countries!


His latin name would be Halichoerus grypus, translated to English as the 'Hook-nosed sea pig' - known to fisherman the world over as the common grey seal. On average they consume 5Kg of fish per day unless breeding.
