my hero of the day, good to see someone sticking up for common sense. And good to see that the relevant quango and police have time on their hands to oversee this agregious activity, clearily there is nothing else more pressing.
It really does call into question how much waste in food and fish the EU has been responsible for over the years and then we get taxed for the privilege of enforcing it.
Seamus O'Flaherty, who own the Saltees Quest, gave away the fish rather than discard it at sea after the vessel exceeded its EU quota of monkfish.
He said he took the action to highlight a campaign by who oppose the EU rule that requires over-quota fish to be thrown back in the sea.
Officers from the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority monitored the activity.
The vessel's skipper, Jimmy Byrne, is at Kilmore Quay with officers from the SFPA and gardaí are present.
