A bumper season for the large scallops known in France as Coquilles St. Jacques has turned into a bitter dispute in the English Channel, as French fishermen, angry over British expansion into their traditional waters, surrounded British boats in a show of maritime force.
"Now, the British are coming, taking away our resources, fully legally," Mr. Seron said by telephone. "They didn't make rules to protect [scallops] in front of their own doorstep so they come here instead."
French fisherman have sacrificed for some 15 years, working under catch quotas to resupply a dwindling stock, and it has worked, said Jean-Louis Seron, who heads the Coquilles Saint Jacques commission based in Dieppe.
