Why is no one brave enough to stand up to the fishing industry?

George Monbiot wrote this piece in June (it was too good not to share) about the failure of politicians to stop some of the more destructive practices of the fishing industry just across the water from us in Cardigan Bay, a special area of conservation.

Here’s an extract:  The bay is strictly protected. It can’t be damaged, and the dolphins and other rare marine life can’t be disturbed. So why the heck has a fleet of scallop dredgers been allowed to rip it to pieces?
