    So you're condoning the actions of Fruit and Veg in general (selling of red-list species and undersize crayfish) and specifically the fact that one of their managers locked away journalists in a walk-in refrigerator?

    I watched a intresting 3 part documentary by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall called Hugh's fish fight. Basically half the fish caught of EU shores are thrown back dead due to EU laws and he is fighting to make it legal to sell these fish and not waste them to the sea. In a ideal world only sustainable fishing methods would be used, but due to long liners and drag nets being in the waters it would be impossible to target only legal species and all others are still being caught and thrown back dead...

    he has a intresting idea and way of thinking. I believe the EU area actually reforming their fishing laws after the some of the work this man did!

    Hugh Fearlessly-Eatsitall. Seriously though, i have really enjoyed his documentaries on the fishing and poultry industries, well worth watching.

    the problem you have is that is you make bycatch sellable you risk that they will target the bycatch as a profit stream

    the answer is fishing methods that reduce bycatch

    Agreed it’s probably the biggest risk.

    But having a quota system in place limiting the catches to a said tonnage at a set interval, will force the fishing boats to try and target only fish that are in abundance and eliminate wastage plus the need to target the bycatch? But I guess it can’t be that simple.

    Proper management of the fish stocks need to be implemented, but I do think we as humans do not fully understand the ocean and that is where the problem originates from
