Fishery shut to mackerel trawlers (UK)
January 20, 2006
Mackerel fisheries are being closed to many of Scotland’s trawlers from next week, it has emerged.
The Scottish Executive has taken the decision as a precaution while it investigates overfishing. It is hoped they can re-open later in the year.
It follows raids last September on two processing factories.
