    Another 1st for Argentina. Fishing some stock to extinction, should have a fisheries treaty with the FALKLAND ISLANDS, oh they did, but bugeyed Nestor tore it up.

    Why would anybody want to pay money for squits when you can make your own?

    Getting record catches is easy if you don't care about the population. I doubt it is sustainable, and I strongly suspect that KFC wouldn't mind fishing the poor squids to extinction just to spite the Falklanders.

    The catches will be down again next year due to the collapse in the economy and the huge rises in the costs to the fishing boat owners.

    No doubt “a cold prune” @1 will blame the Falklanders, if he hasn't got his building site labourers job back and is still posting.
