Europeans urged to eat less fish

The conservation group WWF is calling on European consumers to think twice before they eat fish.
A WWF report says much of the fish sold in Europe is the product of illegal, destructive or wasteful fishing.

The report warns that continuing to buy it will bring many fish stocks to the brink of extinction.

One of the main casualties is plaice. The report says about half the plaice caught are too small and are thrown back – by which time most are dying.
