Hugh's Fish Fight 1/3

9:00pm Tuesday, January 11 on C4

In his new campaigning series, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall leaves the comfort of River Cottage to find out what is going on at the industrial end of our fisheries. And what he finds is that its not just bad… it’s mad. He’s looking at the three fish we eat the most in the UK: cod, tuna and salmon. In this first episode he heads out into the North Sea in search of cod. What he discovers is that up to half the fish being caught in the North Sea is being thrown back into the sea dead, because of what he believes are crazy EU rules.
