Since the MPZ discussions I,ve been searching the net re cod stocks etc. the first page that usually comes up, is that 100 adult cod left in the north sea crap written in The Gardian newspaper :whistle: Half the problem when you start looking into anything, not just fishing, is the misinformation, sometimes through ignorance, and often, through people with their own agenda's. So, as us anglers probably have more knowledge than most, what reasonable ideas can you come up with, to try and put things right. I honestly think we are now at the crossroads regarding putting things right, in another 10 or twenty years it might be too late. It's not all about cod of course there are many other fish, habitats, eco systems etc. try to look at the whole picture, taking many things into account rather than just giving a "ban all trawlers" answer. It's all hyperthetical of course, but I'm sure there will be some good replies along with differing opinions and debate.
