Killing Baby Swords

I thought long and hard about keeping this blog permanently light and airy. Make it all fluff and stuff. Happy happy! In other words: keep the negative news out.
And besides, that would make me (in simple terms) fake.
So, oh well. A depressing video of Swordfish juvies brought to slaughter.

The translation at the bottom reads: "Fishery associations and political forces are fighting to amend the Community rules on fishing bans fishing: the use of the hook no. 7 with the technique of the line makes a real slaughter of small swordfish"

Maybe these fishermen will 'get it'. Maybe not. But one thing's for sure, YouTube exposed it. Until someone takes the vid down.


  1. I linked to your blog in a post I have done with this video
    Hope you don't mind. I you do just let me know.

  2. Hello,

    When I started my blog I had the same idea as you, that is, a light hearted blog where I could share my experiences and pass on information to younger angles to keep fishing an enjoyable sport. It didn’t last long. Soon I was shocked by the things I found on the net, and shocked to find that many people here (Spain) saw me as some kind of threat. The Video (I shall now add to my page) is a perfect example of how we (humanity) are destroying the ocean. Shameful!

    Thank you, and never stop airing your views.
