Only 4% of the Ocean remains untouched. The situation is catastrophical in Europe and Japan specially.
Effects of bottom trawling.
I just can't believe that EU authorities, from Parliament to Comission passing by the council of Ministers are not able to just forbid bottom trawling in European waters. The situation is getting worse every year and fishing industries are suffering it already but nobody seems to care. There's an attitude of eyes that don't see, heart that doesn't feel. They are perfectly able to make such stupid agreements as banning patio heaters or whatever other idiocy but they are not able tackle any real problems, much less if they have to face the industry.
It's so outrageous that I feel shame of being European sometimes.
