C.O.D.


News that the Marine Conservation Society has removed haddock caught in 3 North Sea and west of Scotland locations from the sustainable seafood list (www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-39293265). Other haddock populations still make the list. This has, predictably, not gone down well with fishermen (largely based in Peterhead) but is a consequence of the haddock populations of potential breeding age declining below acceptable levels in the 3 specified areas. This might be bad news for cod whose levels in these areas have increased, making it an acceptable replacement species.
