  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Letting bottom trawlers fish in protected areas like ‘bulldozing through nature reserve’ | ITV News” – below is their description.

    Travelling on a flat calm sea into the middle of the English Channel, those on board this Greenpeace vessel knew that catching fishing activity inside a Marine Protected Area (MPA) was highly likely.

    Such benign conditions are perfect for trawling.

    The Sea Beaver is spending the summer patrolling British waters looking for fishing in MPAs.

    These areas, it’s argued, are protected in name only.

    Law does not prevent trawlers from dragging their nets along the bottom but in doing so, campaigners ask how it is compatible with environmental protection?
