Fish Fight - Asda's policy on the issue of discarding fish
Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s Fish Fight programmes on Channel 4 in the week beginning 10th January 2011 have highlighted the Governmental policy of discarding fish when managing fisheries within the European Union.
Asda recognises the challenges faced by regulators, fishermen and fish processors in balancing what are often conflicting forces. However, Asda does not support the use of a policy of discards within the Common Fisheries Policy. We support the policy being changed to avoid the discarding of fish.
