December up North

On the road back home today after a wonderful few days in Manchester. Fascinating to listen to what folk are talking about. Lots of Brexit chat but I sense the possibility is sinking in that it will actually happen and may even not be as bad as first feared. Nothing much on Climate change not even a whisper on Extinction Rebellion Interestingly I chatted to someone about the demonstrations in London recently that closed off London bridges by non violent direct action.

My latest eco-not word is ” whitebait” I didn’t realise it isn’t a species of fish but the generic name given to immature fish of a wide variety of species. Strictly controlled in only a few places in order to conserve future mature fish stocks. The taking of small fry is generally considered to be “not ecologically viable”.You can explore the sustainability of most fish species on the web site of The Marine Conservation Society. Excellent site
