Blimey – monkfish is endangered!

‘ASDA has banned the sale of monkfish from its supermarkets following pressure from environmental campaigners. The supermarket says it will stop selling the fish until the industry takes "appropriate action" to ensure its long-term survival…Asda is the only major supermarket to ban monkfish. However, other retailers have pledged to stop selling other threatened fish such as marlin, shark and swordfish.’

It’s all good that supermarkets are starting to ban it though, if only because there are only about 12 people in the country that know how to cook it without making it taste like greasy shoe leather.
