I have copied a part of the page on Hugh’s site right here – I am so angry about the waste that is going on here!
I have been at this computer for about half an hour – the numbers are growing on this campaign rapidly!! Just timed at pretty much 10 – 20 in 10 seconds! Brilliant work Hugh!!
“For the past few months, I have been travelling around the UK meeting fishermen, marine conservationists, politicians, supermarkets bosses, and of course fish-eating members of the public,” says Hugh.
“My experience, and how it has changed the way I think about fish are shown in Hugh’s Fish Fight (broadcast 11th, 12th, 13th January 2011), as part of Channel 4’s Big Fish Fight.
“This season featuring programmes from fellow chefs Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal and Jamie Oliver, aims to champion sustainable seafood and celebrate lesser known delicacies of the deep.
“This website, fishfight.net is the campaign hub accompanying Hugh’s Fish Fight and will be continuing its work over the coming months. Here you can find out more about the issues raised in Hugh’s Fish Fight and lend your support to the campaign. You can also follow the progress of Hugh’s Fish Fight on Facebook and Twitter.
“Hugh’s Fish Fight is supported by a wide coalition of environmental Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and, we hope, by a growing number of fishermen and policy makers too. A vital part of the campaign, and the area where we are currently looking for public support, is the issue of discards at sea.”
