Hugh's Fish Fight Continues

4th August 2011
Hugh's Fish Fight Continues
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall returns to our screens next Monday with an update on his influential 'Fish Fight' campaign to end to the practice of discarding commercially-caught sea fish.
Earlier this year the public were shocked by the newds that half of all fish caught in the North Sea are thrown back overboard dead - a practice "encouraged" by the quota provisions of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy.
In Hugh's Fish Fight: The Battle Continues, the TV chef puts more pressure on Brussels to act with 18 months still to go till the new Common Fisheries Policy - and its proposal for a ban on discards - becomes law.
According to Channel 4: "The pressure he generates across Europe could be the difference between success and failure, long term sustainable fisheries or more years of pointless waste."
Hugh's Fish Fight: The Battle Continues will be broadcast next Monday 8 August at 9pm on Channel 4.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
