'Independent' report on dredging now complete


Well-known member
So eleven different organisations - excluding people with past involvement or Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) - made up the panel of experts. Is it not possible that the die off was actually nothing to do with the dredging afterall?
The new report by 12 experts found it was "about as likely as not" a pathogen new to UK waters caused the die-off.
They said it was "very unlikely" dredging carried out nearby caused it.
They also ruled out toxic pollutants and harmful algal bloom.
However, current data, they said, "cannot be definitive".

So no idea then?

Be interesting to see what they say when this happens again as the Freeports expand.

No doubt again blame a new pathogen that has absolutely no evidence of existence 🙄

After reviewing the tapes and studying the evidence it’s clear to me now what cause was and it’s clearly

No scientist would put their name to what is mere speculation. Scientists collect hard data then propose their theory.

“If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it.” “When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind.”

So they discount Dredging but also discount the Algal Bloom which was the first "Official" finding Houchen and Co hung their hat on. This just gets more unclear as it goes on.

So The official report dismissed a very plausible and even in their own words is at least a possibility in pyradine , instead for a “fictitious” disease that they can’t name or even prove.

It’s a bit like being robbed and the police coming over and saying I know who did this… aliens.
