"Urges the Commission to take measures to reduce the negative effects of seals and certain seabirds"

Thought you might like to see this amendment from an EU Fisheries report that will be voted on in Strasbourg tomorrow afternoon.

Urges the Commission to take measures to reduce the negative effects of seals and certain seabirds on fish stocks, particularly where these are invasive species in a particular region;

Hey guess what, seals and seabirds have to eat too and in my opinion they are more entitled to the fish than us. In any case they wouldn't need to be "invasive" if we humans hadn't hoovered up all the fish from the seas and oceans in the first place.
