Irish white fish stocks in trouble

STOCKS of cod, whiting and haddock are still in trouble, despite an improvement in the health of fishing stocks in Irish waters.

Cod stocks have “virtually collapsed” in the Irish Sea, a report warns, while stocks of cod, whiting and haddock are “severely depleted” in Irish fishing grounds west of Scotland.

And the Marine Institute says the cod stocks show “little sign” of recovery, and warns that stocks could become so low that the fish will disappear from dinner plates because it will not be commercially viable to catch.
