The Skiddaw Shuffle

by on Jul.17, 2014, under General

Had a fine day wandering up to the top of Skiddaw in the excellent company of Mr Michael Pennington. The first 40 minutes hiking nearly killed the pair of us but after we got over that it was onwards and upwards to the top!  Well worth the effort, with some spectacular views

The Ullock Pike Hike!

by on May.28, 2012, under General

So its the hottest weather we’ve had all year…what better time to decide to hike up a 700mtr fell in the Lake District, in the full heat of the midday sun?. Under the direction of Andy ‘Sherpa’ Atkinson, myself & Mr. Michael Pennington actually did make it to Ullock Pike and beyond. A grand day oot.

Fish Farm?

by on Mar.29, 2010, under General

This is nuts: It takes around 6 tonnes of wild fish to reduce to 1 tonne of fishmeal, and then anything from 1.5 to 3 tonnes of meal to produce 1 tonne of farmed salmon. Comprende? we catch and kill 6 tonnes of wild fish to turn it in to 1 tonne of fishmeal…to then feed to other fish…to then kill and eat.

“Farmed fish are fed oils and meal made from other fish: close to a third of the catch from the world’s fisheries is used for non-food products, with the majority being converted into fishmeal and fish oil.” (read more)

Now, I like a salmon steak as much as anyone, but if this is the main way we have of producing ‘farmed’ fish, then something is sadly wrong don’t you think?

This is very worrying. “A proposal to ban the export of Atlantic Bluefin tuna, which is a sushi mainstay in Japan, has been rejected by a UN wildlife meeting. Stocks have fallen by about 85% since the industrial fishing era began”

This quote says it all ” The market for this fish is just too lucrative… for enough governments to support a truly sustainable future for the fish ”
