Hugh’s Fish Fight: Save Our Seas

fish fight 2013As the European Parliament voted last week to end discards as part of an ambitious reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Fish Fight Series 2 start tonight on Channel 4.

Hugh goes to the Philippines to witness fishermen dynamiting fish, and discovers how this practice has decimated fish stocks.

Off the Isle of Man he goes underwater to see the destructive effects of scallop dredging, and sees how marine protected areas are helping the recovery of the island’s waters.

And Hugh launches his new campaign on the sands at Weston-super-Mare, with a dramatic public display of what is at stake if we don’t look after our seas.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is currently campaigning for the government to create 127 New Marine Conservation Zones to safeguard our seas.
