Prince Charles praises Somali pirates for ‘fish explosion’

The Prince of Wales claims the activities of Somali pirates off the coast of East Africa have frightened off trawling vessels, allowing marine life to recover and an “explosion of fish.”

Speaking to Sky News, Prince Charles said: “As a result [of Somali pirates], there hasn’t been any fishing there for the last 10 or 15 years.

“And from that there has been a fantastic explosion of bigger and bigger fish.”
