Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall embarks on a new campaign to save our fish in this three-part special. Hoping to raise awareness of diminishing fish stocks, Hugh works to find a solution to this global problem. Scientists believe that if action isn’t taken soon, certain sea favourites may be non-existent for future generations. Focusing on the three species most widely consumed in the UK – cod, salmon and tuna – Hugh leaves no stone unturned in his mission to understand what is happening to the British fishing industry. In the process, he is horrified to learn that up to half of all fish caught in the North Sea are thrown back dead. Hugh also investigates the supermarkets’ claims – what exactly does “protecting the marine environment” mean? Determined to help conserve fish stocks, Hugh launches an online campaign and takes on the supermarkets, the politicians and the public in one almighty Fish Fight.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall embarks on a brand new battle to Save Our Seas. Hugh travels to the Philippines to observe fishermen dynamiting fish while off the Isle of Man he witnesses the destructive effects of scallop dredging.
Hugh travels further than he's ever been before, close to Antarctica and one of the last significant patches of sea not already being overrun with fishing boats. But even here, he discovers a high-tech fishery that is targeting krill.
