Fish You Shouldn’t Eat

A list of those fish which are being overfished or caught using wasteful or destructive fishing methods. Keep these species out of your basket, and ask your supermarket to stop selling them!

Example: Cod:
– All NE Atlantic cod stocks are over-fished and in decline according to independent scientists.
– Stocks in some areas, including the North Sea, are so low that scientists are recommending that cod fishing should be banned in these areas.
– Methods used for catching cod have high levels of bycatch of immature fish and non-target species
