Why is the Isle Of Man covered here. 

I'm more concerned by this. Are foreign fishing vessels in our waters? If the british don't want anyone in theirs, they shouldn't be fishing other countries waters.

I think this is more about the ownership of British registered vessels. They are british registered companies, but with foreign owners. Much of the criticism really falls to defras door, as they give most of the quota to the large groups, leaving little for your average fishermen.

I have no idea where the picture emanated from, I copied the link Andy put on my Facebook timeline and one of my friends replied with that image.  It is something I have heard before that before anyway.  Should have put the source of that and will try and find it out, it was just the image posted.

 

Edit - found the source of the graph, it is the Times, think you have to register to see the full article though.

Quotas of this kind invariably become a tradeable commodity and end up in few hands. This protest won't make a blind bit of difference to that. Even the bone brained Eurorats learnt that over milk quota.
