In October 2021, a devastating event unfolded along the shores of Teesside and North Yorkshire, leaving thousands of crabs lifeless on the beaches. This catastrophe had far-reaching consequences for the local fishing industry and the fragile coastal ecosystem. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion as we delve into the causes, impacts, and potential solutions surrounding this alarming incident. 


The narrative provided by the government was that an algal bloom was to blame. Yet, for the fishermen witnessing their very livelihoods crumble, this explanation proved inadequate. Determined to uncover the truth, the fishermen embarked on their own quest for answers. Their pursuit led them to a chilling revelation: toxic chemicals, stirred by the relentless dredging of the seabed, had been proposed by academics as a possible cause.  

What is the evidence for algal bloom vs dredging? Why would the government cover up the truth? What does the future hold for the fishing industry in Teesside? What can we do to help? For answers to these questions and more, please join us for an open and respectful discussion, with a panel of experts. All are welcome and there will be plenty of opportunities to put your questions to the speakers!
