A Shock to the System - Fish for the Killing?

by George Monbiot - the Guardian

A new form of marine mass destruction is outrageously being justified by the EU and its member states in the name of “scientific research." Story here.

Not to be outdone, Canadian fishers are eyeing the EU "experiment" with electrical shock with some interest. A group from Fundy North in New Brunswick seemed properly impressed when they were briefed in the Netherlands last year about the practise. The "industry-oriented," website, "The Canadian Fisheries Research Network," reports they were "very interested by the presentation (by their Dutch colleagues) and in particular the use of pulse trawling for flounder."

Lovely.
