Fish for thought

There's definitely something fishy going on this January and it might have something to do with www.fishfight.net. Fronted by UK TV chef and food campaigner Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, the viral campaign draws attention to the problem of 'discarded fishing' across the EU.

It is thought that half of all fish caught in the North Sea are thrown overboard due to the severe EU quotas imposed on fisherman. Gulp! You can sign up to their facebook campaign here or if you're in the UK look out for the Channel 4 Fish Season from January 2011.

Before taking a bite of that sushi roll though... you might want to check out 'The End of the Line' - another hard hitting documentary about the impact of overfishing globally. If you missed it at last year's Dutch Environmental Film Festival, you can watch the trailer here. Stay posted for more great eco films in 2011...
