New EU policy to benefit small-scale fishermen, Commissioner Damanaki
Thousands of small coastal fishermen, active in Greece, who fish with traditional tools, will benefit from the EU's new fishery policy, since Brussels is "freezing" the funding of big fishing vessels and placing the small ones at the focus in an effort to convey the weight centre to the viability of seas.

The above appears from statements made on Thursday by European Maritime Policy and Fisheries Commissioner Maria Damanaki, during a press conference held in Thessaloniki in the framework of the High Level Conference on Fishing Capacity, under the auspices of the Greek Presidency of the EU's council.

"Greece has approximately 10,000 owners of small vessels, who fish with traditional means. They are at the focus of our care", Damanaki said.

So is the EU to stop the compulsory scrapping of traditional wooden caiques?

The Health Ministry on Friday issued a warning regarding the consumption of bitter almonds and apricot kernels following reports from the Poison Control Center at the Aglaia Kyriakou Children’s Hospital of a spike in cyanide poisoning cases in the past six months.

The culprits are believed to be bitter almonds and apricot kernels sold at supermarkets and health food stores that are advertised as having antioxidant properties.

Glorious weather here in Hampshire this week-end. Lots of blue sky, warm sunshine with a slight breeze. Perfect weather for creosoting the fence!
