Peter Aldous calls for action on electronic pulse fishing in the southern North Sea

19th January 2017

Peter Aldous calls on the Government to act on beam trawling, fly shooting and electronic pulse fishing in UK waters which are having a devastating impact on local fishing communities.

There is a continuing problem of beam trawling, fly shooting and electronic pulse fishing in UK waters. Not only are those practices environmental vandalism, but they are having a devastating impact on local fishing communities. Will the Minister assure the House that he is doing everything he can to address the problem?

 

I am aware of the concerns, particularly about pulse trawling in the southern North sea. I have asked CEFAS, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, to look at the issue, do a review of current literature and give me a report on what we know about the science. In addition, there is a working group in the EU on the matter.
