For those U.K. members who haven't yet signed up to this, please use the link to sign the petition against discard of fishing catch. The problem has been highlighted in this week's series of T.V. progs by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall - half the fish caught by E.U. fishing vessels are thrown back into the sea dead as they exceed allocated quotas for the fishermen. There are also links to the tuna campaign as well.  Even if you don't eat fish you can still make your voice heard about the way other people catch them.

I went to the website and "signed" the petition against discarding fish (I did not notice the link to the tuna campaign and have no intention of getting lost in endless links that take me around in circles).

I am extremely disappointed that the "FishFight" Campaign does not seem to be about eliminating or even reducing the consumption of fish. All fishing is cruel, unsustainable and wasteful. It seems to be promoting an increase in the consumption of fish! There was no mention of veg*nism (not even as an option) nor was there an opportunity to leave a comment on the petition or anywhere else. With "campaigns" like this, no wonder things are not getting better for animals despite the increased strength of the animal rights movement.
