The shark finning regulations can be accessed on line here: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/…01:0003:EN:PDF These regulations were amended by 605/2013, accessed here: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/…01:0003:EN:PDF The MMO did produce a guide to the protection of sharks, skates and rays – However, the Shark, Skate and Ray Conservation Plan, published January 2011, can be found here: http://webarchive.nationalarchives.g…ation-plan.pdf This contains the following pertinent paragraph: “The UK has, and will continue to take a strong line on finning and has ceased issuing permits under Regulation 1185/2003. All sharks caught by UK registered vessels must now be landed with their fins naturally attached – this not only reduces any risk of finning but also provides better data on the species caught.” It would appear full processing of all sharks , inc Tope , smoothhound , spurdog etc at sea is not allowed ?

Just sitting here at my desk,in the distance I heard the unmistakeable sound of the Rolls Royce Merlin engines of the Avro Lancaster. As I’ve always had an interest in World War two aircraft,mainly because my late Father used to fly B-24 Liberators and B-25 Mitchells during the war I just had to have a look. What greeted me was not one, but two Lancasters, one of them being the Canadian Lancaster which flew over from Canada last week, flying at a height of no more than 1000 feet.
I’ll never see that again!!!
