You may or may not be aware that a friend of mine and I take to the sea, in search of the Cod ! However, we have not been out for a long time now, because of my transplant, and now Terry is layed up because of his own operation for his varicose veins, which have now become infected. So I imagin it shall be quite a while until we can get out. Just goes to show, we can be riding on the crest of a wave one minuet, the next we are both cought in a rip tide, so to speak. Such is life I guess.
” NOW THE REAL REASON FOR THIS POST “
Some may be aware that the fish stocks in the North Sea are down. Yet Millions of ton’s of prime choice Cod is being cast back into the sea “dead”. This is called “discard ” I call it bloody insanity !!!
THE FISH FIGHT
The Fish Fight Petition is Winning Nine Thousand People Signatures Every Hour – see Video
This is incredible folks, every hour over nine thousand people are signing Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Fish Fight petition. This shows the strength of feeling there is against the ridiculous, no scandalous, EU legislation that forces fishermen to kill and throw back into the sea perfectly good, edible fish.
As a measure of population outrage 9,000 signatures per hour is convincing.
There are problems that need to be overcome. There are attitudes amongst EU legislators who believe that the problem is insoluble that must be changed! Out eating habits need to alter slightly.
The worst point is that more than half of all our ever-depleating stocks of fish that are caught in the North Sea are thrown back into the sea, dead.
Now Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall has started a campaign to get ordinary people like you and me, who are appalled by this ridiculous and wasteful situation, to take up our cudgels against the EU legislators and get them to change a stupid law.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO SIGN THIS PETITION. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THIS IS VERY CLOSE TO MY HEART.
