UK | Enviros decry loophole that allows "monster" trawler to operate in MPA in English Channel

Conservation groups are calling for reform of marine protected areas after it was revealed that a “monster trawler” was allowed to fish in one in the English Channel.


The Margiris, which is about 142m long and can process 250 tonnes of fish a day, dragged its nets repeatedly through the Offshore Overfalls Marine Conservation Zone, according to analysis of satellite tracking data by Greenpeace.
