And they're off! - day one of the Bay de Seine scallop fishery.

There are at least 67 scallop trawlers currently vying for room...

to fish for scallops in the Bay de Seine - there may be many more who do not have AIS fitted to their vessels - as it is not compulsory for vessels under 15 metres - though many do for security purposes.

at the moment there are just a handful of big UK scallopers fishing outside the 12 mile limit.
