The great 2018 high sea scallop skirmish

French and British fishermen clash on the high seas: No, it's not 1805 but a skirmish over scallops. Here's why both sides may be to blame for the diminishing scallop stock.

    Would love to have a war against France, they have all ways been a weak pathetic country.

    What the video doesn’t mention (and is important) is that in the incoming months, UK fishermen won’t be able to go in this area because of the Brexit. A law will prevent them to “fish” in some areas, including this one.

    This report is factually inaccurate

    If we are allowed to farm all year round, why are they so expensive?!

    Scallop farming would be a billion dollar revenue so why is this very profitable market not explored. Dredging the seabed is the worst environmental impact on sea life in the oceans. Greenpeace should take this on as their next crusade. Governments should stop it. Period.

    I'm sorry, but this is insane. These are just goofy little mollusks. Why on earth hasn't someone figured out how to farm these things by now and just leave the wild ones alone?

    Moratorium on all fishing in the channel for 5 years.

    Remember the fuss British fishermen made a few years ago about Spanish boats fishing near Cornwall. The French are restricted from dredging scallops all year round so that stock are not completely depleted. No wonder they are pissed when boats from UK turn up to fish when they can't. No sympathy for the UK guys. In fact not much sympathy for any commercial fishermen because left to their own devices they would overfish and destroy stocks.

    Keep polluting our planet and there won't be any scallops at all. 😠

    Der er en forskel i tidspunkterne hhv. Frankrig og Britanien kan fiske for også kammuslinger!? Det ene lands for hele året, mens det andet land kun kan fiske fra oktober til maj. Kan det kaldes uretfærdighed eller v.v.🤨
