16 January 2011: Hugh's Fish Fight

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (of River Cottage fame) is leading a campaign to stop "discard" from fishing practices in the North Sea. Strangely, it is EU policy that is leading to this unbelievable act of food wastage and environmental destruction. While this particular case might be a "UK problem", it has global ramifications. Alongside this campaign, Hugh is championing the drive towards sustainable seafood and fishing practices along with some of worlds best chefs. Check out http://www.fishfight.net/ and also pick up some great sustainable fish recipes along the way. For those based in the USA, Monterey Bay Aquarium has an excellent iPhone app called Seafood Watch to help you identify sustainable seafood in your local area. It is free and you can find it here http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/seafood-watch/id301269738?mt=8
