Breakthrough in the Fish Fight!

Those of you following the big Fish Fight, we’ve had a massive breakthrough!

Fisheries ministers have finally decided that Europe is to completely ban the controversial policy of throwing dead fish caught by accident (under the EU quota system) back into the water, to be wasted.  Too many fish had been killed and discarded, simply because the fishermen exceeded the ‘EU quotas’, and ministers have now stated that waste of this kind is no longer going to be tolerated.

This is incredibly exciting news; news which many people, including Chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, have been fighting hard to achieve, and we are rejoicing here at Housebites!!

If you’re interested in this debate, then check out the BBC website for more info, or listen to Hugh’s statement of relief on the River Cottage site.
