Killing the Clue isn't a Cure

Fishermen know that seabirds follow fish. Looking for fish? Look for birds. When the fish move on, so do the seabirds.

That cormorants have moved inland to feed is a clue to a larger problem: fewer fish at sea. Will killing the cormorants bring back the fish? Unlikely.

  1. The authorities in Asturias, Spain have authorised the culling of over 240 cormorants to, so they say, protect sport fishing.

    What a joke.

    The problem in Asturias is contamination not cormorants.

    Also, who is going to count the cull? they say 240 and the real number will be however many cormorants are seen.



Thank you for visiting!
