Weymouth Leads the Way with Sustainable Fish
Published on 18 Jan 11
Following Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's campaign to get more people to eat sustainable fish, which was featured on his recent 'Fish Fight' programme shown on Channel 4, no less than 4 Weymouth traditional fish and chips shops have already added mackerel to their menus.
Bennett's on the Waterfront, The Marlboro, Fish 'n' Fritz and the Old Harbour fish & chip shops are all highlighted on the website www.fishfight.net
The programme also highlighted, and is seeking to change, the practise of 'discards', fish that is thrown back into the sea dead simply because the boat has exceeded the quotas imposed by the Common Fisheries Policy.
