I understand that some years ago, Portugal sold it's fishing rights for shellfish to Spain (though someone could help to confirm this and provide a definitive statement).

Now, Portugal is under threat again.

I just read the article posted, do the government think we are idiots, clearly they do to get this one through, its blatant and in your face. Wonder how many civil servant pockets are being lined to keep this quite.

ASMAA posed the question (among others):
Why is the regulation targeted only to the area between Vila Real de Santo Antonio and Faro – especially in the Olhao region?

ASMAA found studying the documentation further it seems rather 'coincidental' that the areas most affected by this degrading of our shellfish industry are the very same areas where oil and gas will be explored early in 2014, located between Vila Real de Santo Antonio and Faro.

Come on government at least do it for the whole of the Algarve then at least we might question your motives.

Love how this democratically elected government produce these new laws, just like pulling rabbits out of a hat. No before consultation and taking all concerned by surprise.

Biggest polluters here are the Camara which has already been fined for polluting, also the water treatment plant that causes the stink as it blows off its gases.

For those transitting the area, look at the discharge pipe close by the ferry jetty.

Don't suppose anyone has a rough map of what constitutes zone area A and B?
