Prince Charles hails PIRATES for an ’explosion’ in marine life due to scared fisherman.
Speaking at an ocean conservation conference in Malta, the Prince of Wales stirred up controversy by praising Somalian pirates for scaring off trawler crews to create a greater wealth of marine life.

The Royal said: “As a result, there hasn’t been any fishing there for the last ten or 15 years. And from that, there has been a fantastic explosion of bigger and bigger fish.”

Since delivering his contentious comments, two former military members have lashed out at the Prince for his apparent endorsement of Somalian gangs.
