Fish Fight / by Jerry

Excitement while I was away as Bird Island briefly hit the headlines thanks to the celebrity cook Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and his Fish Fight programme.

Marine Stewardship is a very important issue and organisations like the Marine Conservation Society do excellent work in promoting sustainable fisheries. Programmes like Fish Fight bring the issue to a large audience and have the power to do a lot of good.

Unfortunately it seems that with this programme they at best failed to do any research and at worst blatantly ignored scientific evidence, preferring to go ahead with their pre-concieved ideas.

Details can be found on Ruth's blog as well as in several newspapers: Guardian, Mail.
