I AM in­debted to John Eard­ley for be­ing able to write “The fi­nal straw” [T&S, March]. With­out his in­for­ma­tive and an­a­lyt­i­cal con­tri­bu­tion to a let­ter sent to the Na­tional Assem­bly for Wales, com­mon sense would not have pre­vailed in Welsh fish­ery pol­icy. John has worked tire­lessly, often sin­gle-hand­edly, on pro­posed ro­dand-line re­stric­tions over many tur­bu­lent years, as stocks de­clined and hatch­eries were forced to close. John is owed a mas­sive thank you from fish­er­men through­out Wales for be­ing the one who has spo­ken out and at­tempted to rein in run­away and short-sighted reg­u­la­tions, per­ceived by many as be­ing dam­ag­ing to the fu­ture of the fish stocks, en­vi­ron­ment and econ­omy of Wales.
