if the SNP are honest in the Implementation of the Wild Fish PROTECTION act then salmon farming should be first to go,  where is the sense in protecting the industry, and penalising sport fishermen,?Wasn't it the salmon Industry that was supposed to be the saviour of the wild salmon? after all angling through out the UK is a popular sport, enjoyed by millions and supporting  millions of jobs,  but the Likes of Gilpin Bradley would see it differently , he was collared, probably because the big producers didn't want to be seen as the villains, our club would like him to remove his derelict cage from our loch , it's breaking up and  leaving rubbish round the loch, but that is beside the point,an interesting comment on the programme was about Wrasse , that the farmed (bred) wrasse  didn't eat sealice? where the fishermen have been trapping wrasse for the farms  they are find other species are moving in,  Octopus for instance it just shows you cant do things like that with out some sort of Knock on effect,

That chap Gilpin did come across as not very nice, especially when they asked about salmon farming killing wild fish. You could see hear the aggression in his answer and voice....
