Fish Fight

Now for some not so cool foodie news. I guess we all know by now what predatory fishing is doing to our oceans. In the North Sea, 50% of all fish is caught and thrown back dead into the water because it has insufficient commercial value.

A program aired on Channel 4 this week has however had a huge effect on fish sales in UK supermarkets already, with more sustainable species flying off the shelves.

I'm adding the little widget for the campaign here, with a petition signed already by 550,000 people, to try to get fisheries to change their practices.

Sardines and mackerel, not so shabby....
