In January 2011, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall left the comfort of River Cottage behind, and went on a journey to find out what was really going on at the industrial end of our fisheries. What he found was that things are not just bad … They’re mad.
“I have been travelling around the UK meeting fishermen, marine conservationists, politicians, supermarkets bosses, and of course fish-eating members of the public,” says Hugh.
“The experience, and how it changed the way I think about fish were shown in Hugh’s Fish Fight (broadcast 11th, 12th, 13th January 2011) as part of Channel 4’s Big Fish Fight.” Watch all three programmes on 4oD.
Hugh learnt that half the fish caught in the North Sea are being thrown back into the sea, dead, because of crazy EU laws.
So, he launched a campaign ‘Hugh’s Fish Fight’ to try to change those laws and was supported by a wide coalition of environmental Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and, we hope, by a growing number of fishermen and policy makers too.
