Last night's discards ban

I'm delighted that Europe's fish ministers are still agreeing that discards will be banned, but the devil is in the detail.

What they agreed last night is weaker and harder-to-enforce than the ban our MEPs in the European Parliament voted for (with a huge majority) three weeks ago.

There's now going to be weeks of negotiation to reach a final deal, and we will be fighting to strengthen those details and support our MEPs who want to see a discard ban that does the job it is supposed to.

Keep the fight up Hugh, sounds like the politics over here in Ukraine.

Hugh, you are a wonderful human being and set a shining example to the countless celebrities and public figures who could do so much to raise awareness for good causes - if only everyone cared as much as you. Love from a Fish Fighter : ) x
