Three quarters of the world's fish are either fully exploited or overfished. If nothing is done to stop squandering of fish stocks the life of the oceans will face collapse and millions of people could starve. Fishing is an industry as technologically advanced as space travel, with an attitude to conservation 10,000 years out of date. Trawling on an industrial scale in the North Sea smashes everything it does not catch, taking 16lb of marine animals to produce just 1lb of sole. Also looks at the role of conservationists, governments and multi-national companies and considers some models for recovery.
