Well written explanation,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
On the Radio 4 Today Programme the common fisheries policy crops up every few months and especially when the UK has to go into bat against other countries in Europe. The battle lines are drawn between the vested interests of the fishing industries and the stock levels of the fish. Each side has facts on their side but consensus must be met. What this book explains is how this state of affairs arose and suggests future solutions to combat it.
Its a dry topic but interesting from a historical point of view and it gives a view of how countries interact at this sort of level. On a personal level it was worrying, I like fish and I like shellfish but my very buying of these products might be harming vital fish stocks all over the world. Should I stop or not? I was unable to decide.
