Has anyone else been watching the programs? I think its a good idea that Hugh and co are trying to highlight the current problems with the fish industry regulations. Its all good and well but were do I go to buy some of the rarer types of fish and mammoth sized king crabs?

Really was good watching. Fair play to the chefs taking time to bring it to our attention.

Yep watched it all, been really interesting. Not really a "fishy" person but when I do eat it I go for the norm, cod, prawns, sea-bass, mackerel etc etc. Heston was good but that meal would be my worst nightmare!

Billingsgate to get pretty much anything! I believe it is something that needs to be addressed as throwing back dead fish is no good but a quota is the only way to stop them over fishing. Remove the limit and our fish stocks will vanish in no time

It was shocking seeing all those fish being thrown back into the sea!

I wondered if you would. (Not you personally), but anyone who watched it.

It is true though. Why just have cod?

I don't live in London, I think for people other than those living in cities with big fish markets, they are going to struggle to find the rarer stuff.

I think most people like me go for cod because it tastes nice and its what they know.
But now I know the situation I definitely would think twice now before buying cod.

I didn't like the look of the mackerel in batter!
#17
I got the whole Trawling thing. But as an angler, I've been some good places in Cornwall, and over last few years, the Mackerel has been reduced, due to the increased fishing further in shore. Which, I know people may not be interested in, but the angling side is also being affected as you are casting as far as some of the bouys sometime, which isnt told by the story.

That is what they said! You have to try it.

Or, tell your local chippy. (I have the feeling if I did that, they would be like..... oO )

No, but the Trawling seems to be coming closer to shore from what ive seen. Which as an angler, I'm sure people have noticed, more bouys popping up marking nets or pots which affects various areas.

I think the same. Would they really think.. 'Damn, we must start doing this'.

Noooo!! And you would look a fool, and say, 'OK, Cod and chips please'. ;)
