During the winter months there were some strange lights out at sea.
I kept wondering what they were.
I found out that they were a dozen or so scallops boats.
The last time this happened was around *15 years ago (*I need to check that)
The locals tell me it took 10 years for the bay to recover from 'the last time'.
Although we can't see what they do to the sea bed (I would love to see that, wouldn't you?), we are starting to hear the effects.
The eels have not come in.
The mackerel have not come in.
There are reports of no lobster.
The dolphins are here, but their food isn't.
So while all this was happening, our local newspaper chose to write nothing on it.
The problem is that you can't see the damage they did.
I think we need to do something.
I think howies needs to do something.
I think Cardigan Bay people need to know what to do about it.
We need to get a researcher on board and start getting some facts about what has been done so it can never happen again.
I don't know the answer to all this, but I know we have to work out the questions.
I will ask everyone at howies to see who is up for doing something.
I see the sign on the wall each day: Dick Dastardly was right. Don't just sit there Do something.
