A new campaign, Fish Fight, has been launched by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, the Marine Conservation Society, Greenpeace and Client Earth.
The aim of the campaign is to raise public awareness and encourage consumer activism over a number of issues concerning global fish stocks and the marine environment. An astonishing half of all fish caught in the North Sea are thrown back overboard!! This cannot be right in any way!!
The first element of the campaign, launching now, is focusing on the broken Common Fisheries Policy and quota system that is the cause of a massive problem of discarded fish, especially in the North Sea. Do watch a short film highlighting the issue, and pledge support for the campaign at: http://www.fishfight.net
