Anchovy alert

Speaking as a trombonist, I wonder whether the lack of anchovies in the Bay of Biscay, noted by Nick Lloyd, isn’t almost entirely due to alterations in sea temperature. I don’t think other variables altered greatly and this winter was the coldest for a long time, so maybe they just went some place warmer, like the Gulf Stream–something analogous did happen a couple of years back. If temperature is the culprit, then, rather than stopping fishermen fishing, it might be more appropriate to get them to emigrate to the west of Ireland or wherever.
