Catch ten fish - dump nine !!

Fishermen across Europe are to be banned from dumping billions of dead fish back into the sea in a move by Brussels designed to put an end to the “morally wrong” waste of sea life.

The change comes after an admission that EU fishing policy was doing more damage than good among the fragile stocks of the North Atlantic, where 1.3 million tonnes of fish, or 13 per cent of the catch, are thrown back every year. In the North Sea, between 500,000 and 880,000 tonnes of fish are discarded.
