For anyone who fancies a break from the regular VinB Punch-and-Judy show, this documentary from the director of The Pipe will be premièred tonight on RTE One. Filmed in Ireland, Newfoundland and Norway, it highlights the declining fish stocks of the North Atlantic, and the impact on small fishing communities of the predations from supertrawlers.

Blaming factory ships for the decline in fish stocks is a bit like blaming vultures for the massacre.

Shush you'll get us all into trouble. We're not allowed to discuss any environmental issues in this country other than climate change.

Demonstrably false. Go to the Environment forum and have a look. This thread is in the Backstage forum and is a discussion about a programme later this evening dealing with Atlantic fishing. You are free to discuss the topic and the programme.
You chose to discuss climate change. Quit the whinging.

I'm looking at the programme description in both the Irish Times and the RTE Guide and there's no mention of overfishing. The RTE Guide doesn't have any description at all, which is bizarre for a 90 minute programme on its own prime time schedule.

As the oil majors drive deeper into their fragile seas, and the world’s largest fishing companies push fish stocks to the brink, coastal communities and the resources they rely on are fast approaching a point of no return. This has huge implications for Irish fishing communities and the national exchequer and is even more relevant with news of Brexit and the UK leaving the Common Fisheries Area and with Providence Resources planning a large Irish drilling program in 2017.
What has oil exploration got to do with fishing? It sounds like it's designed to appeal to a certain group. But, I'll reserve judgment till I watch it.

The Pipe was a more even handed documentary than you'd normally get in this country. So this might be too.

That could make for an interesting discussion!!

The impact of oil and gas drilling accidents on EU fisheries

1.4. Scope and methodology
This document aims to briefly compile the current state of knowledge for the economic coston fisheries that results from accidents occurring in the offshore O&G industry. Given theirshare of the marine environment, there is an intense interaction between the fishing andO&G industries during normal operations, from which both industries benefit. However,when activities deviate from normal functioning through an accident in O&G installations,there is a high likelihood that it will result in significant effects to fishing stocks and damageto fishing activities.This work investigates historical trends in the occurrence of accidents, and the mostfrequent types and causes of current accidents, as well as the effects and impacts on themarine environment and on fisheries and aquaculture. Impacts on fisheries have aneconomic cost, historically established by available, accepted or convenient methods.Through a series of examples this document describes the relevant and most frequentmethods employed for the estimation of economic costs, and highlights the circumstancesthat make each one applicable and recommended. Existing efforts to prevent accidents andto alleviate and mitigate their effects on the environment, and in particular on fisheries andaquaculture are also described.

My last documentary, The Pipe, told the story of a small coastal community in Mayo as they faced down one of the world’s most powerful oil companies, which was forcing a high-pressure raw gas pipeline through their farms and fishing grounds.
High pressure, raw gas pipeline.. Load of bollix.

Munkeyman. What accidents have occurred in Corrib field?

Feck all that I know of. Will watch the show with an unassuming eye and then doing a bit of light reading. I'll get back to you then - promise!

Atlantic Risteard O'Domhnaill Film

Interesting film on RTE 1 now covering the scandalous failure of our politicians to secure our potential oil and gas resources and fishing resources. Will be on the RTE player soon.
