The new EU fishing quotas made me wonder whether this problem is handled in entirely the wrong way. We’re restricting the days the fishermen can spend at sea and we’re telling them to throw away big parts of their catch.

But wouldn’t it be an alternative to restrict the technology instead, ordering them to use small, slow boats with small nets and no fancy technology to spot the fish, basically taking them back to the days when overfishing wasn’t a problem?
