-This has been on the TV a lot the past couple of days. It's horrific, and such a waste.

The show that was on this evening was showing the fishermen reluctantly throwing the dead fish over the side because law says they can't take them on land - though they're perfectly fine to eat and there is nothing wrong with them at all.

And they say Cod is an endangered fish, while they throw thousands dead overboard everyday. Insanity.

What's the rational for it?
But i won't really call it waste, just because it is dead and edible doesn't mean it is wasted.
Throwing back isn't really that good cause it raises the scavenger and predatory population which can affect the food chain. (That's in theory, but i'm no scientist)

The main thing is that, doing this doesn't help anything at all.

But if you're talking about food wastage, i believe it is better to educate people on wasting food rather than that fish wastage. Cause the food people waste is way more than those thrown back.

Well, you could think about it like this. In order for them to make as much money as they hoped per fishing trip, they will have to fish up more fish, because a certain percentage they catch will be dead and have to be thrown back so it won't add to what they make from that fishing trip. So more fish will have to die in order for the fishing trip to have been worth it than if they could keep the dead ones.

That's how I see it as well.

I tossed my name in for support.
If it does anything then I'll be glad I've done my part.
