I used to enjoy eating cod when it was still sustainable to do so, but that was quite some time ago now. The cod fishing quotas in the Baltic Sea are far higher than what is recommended by scientists. Then add the illegal catch - as much as every third cod is caught illegally! Despite the desperate situation the industry seems strangely unconcerned. One of the big players is Unilever, who have not yet explained how they will tackle illegal cod fishing. In fact, they don’t do much at all.
Send them a reminder that they should clean up their act.
Right now the Arctic Sunrise is out on the Baltic Sea as part of the Defending Our Oceans project, have a look at the blog.
