The European Union changed its policy last year, to stop good fish being discarded dead from boats. Here’s celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall crowing about the Fish Fight. No more discards in European seas!
I’m proud of the Fish Fight too. But a note of caution. Last summer, politicians in our House of Lords (the UK Government’s upper chamber) warned of a risk that discards at sea will simply become discards on land.
I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
