Real Fish Fighter takes the Fish Fighter to sea!!!

Hugh Fearnely-Whiitingstall and skipper Peter Bruce aboard the pair trawler Budding Rose chase North Sea cod.

Message from Peter Bruce:

"Hugh sailed with me on Wednesday.  It wasn't a decision l took lightly but I wanted him to see what we are seeing daily on the Budding Rose and that's the amazing recovery of the cod stock.  I also wanted to discuss with him things like the discard ban and MPAs.  l have to stress l didn't approach Hugh to come with me, it was the opposite.  Will it be a worthwhile exercise l can't be judge of that until its shown on TV."
