Fish discard ban 'could harm smaller Cornish fishing vessels'

EU rules to end fish discards could penalise smaller fleets in Cornwall, it has been claimed.

Laws to end the throwing of unwanted fish overboard were agreed this year after a campaign led by celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

The University of East Anglia said smaller fishing vessels were "at risk of having their fishing curtailed".

Cornish fish producers said the policy had not been thought through. Policy supporters said it would end waste.
