With some fish stocks dangerously low would it be better for us to stop eating fish?

No, not at all. While it is true that some species are at low levels – North Sea cod in particular – many other types of fish are abundant in British waters. In Cornwall, 40 different species of fish are landed every day, of which only 12 are subject to quotas and for those that are restricted by quotas many have seen quota increases in recent years reflecting the greater abundance of some stocks.
