If we're farming most of our fish, why are EU fish quotas so important?




To prevent overfishing?

Stopping overfishing could see fish catches up 87% in waters around UK and Ireland



Sure, quotas are important for sustainability and currently these are set by the EU so "our waters" are fished by various member states.

To counter this I presume the UK has been busy developing its fish farming industry, I think that video said we get 50% of our fish from these farms.

I keep hearing how important it is that we get our fishing rights back from the horrible EU and was wondering why we couldn't focus on fish farming for our requirements. It's not as if we've got a fishing fleet anymore.

Farming definitely seems to need a change.
Scottish salmon sold by a range of supermarkets in the UK has sea lice up to 20 times acceptable limit

As you say, I doubt the UK has much of a fishing fleet anymore.


I've just googled geodesic fish farms and the concept has been around since 2011.
I wonder why it hasn't taken off more?

According to physics, nothing ever quite touches. When you lay your hand on something, there is a microscopic amount of space between the atoms of your hand and whatever you're touching... so no, officer, technically I'm not jacking off right now

Yuck salmon lice sound gross

That was one of the benefits of the geodesic fish farms, they work in the open sea so production isn't so concentrated and intensive.

I also loved how they arrived at their destination when the fish were fully grown, ready to be caught but how do they move around?

Yeah, those spheres looked pretty big and the fish had a lot of space. As long as the "farmers" don't pack the spheres the fish should have a decent living space.

Currents?
Maybe they use tugs to pull the spheres in as they get close to their destination.

What about the spheres passing through shipping lanes though?

Maybe they're deep enough to pass under ships?

If so, how do "farmers" track their spheres and how do they pull them in for harvest?

GPS and Tugs?
