Hugh’s Fish Fight
Did anyone see any of Channel 4’s Big Fish Fight programmes? Celebrity chefs such as Hugh Fearnely Whittingstall, Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal and Jamie Oliver are making broadcasts in order to champion sustainable seafood and celebrate lesser known delicacies of the deep. If you did and want to do something to help, join Hugh’s Fish Fight
Around half of the fish caught by fishermen in the North Sea are unnecessarily thrown back into the ocean dead. The problem is that in a mixed fishery where many different fish live together, fishermen cannot control the species that they catch.
We need to diversify our fish eating habits, and we need to change policy so that it works for fish, fishermen and consumers. We need to eat different fish – more mackerel, flounder, dab, coley and pouting, and if you can’t find any of these at your local fishmonger, deli or supermarket, ask them to get them for you!
