The Prince of Wales has launched a campaign to save the future of fish and chips as he warned of the "dire" consequences of over-fishing.
"Global fish stocks are deteriorating and we cannot ignore the fact, merely carrying on as if it is business as usual," the Prince said.
In a speech to representatives of the worldwide fishing industry at the World Fisheries Congress in Edinburgh, the Prince reminisced about how he escaped from school at Gordonstoun to buy fish and chips in Inverness.
But he said a meal we take for granted will be off the menu in future without long-term management of fish stocks and better scientific research...
The Prince, who is known as the Duke of Rothesay north of the border, used his speech to highlight the work of his International Sustainability Unit, which has set up a marine research programme to identify ways that fish stocks can be managed in such a way that there are more fish, more jobs and better economic returns.
He pointed out that the cod stock in the North Sea, which had become severely depleted through over-fishing, has doubled in size over the past six years thanks to strict fishing quotas and other management techniques, but elsewhere in the world fish stocks were still shrinking.
He said: "If fish stocks fail, then the social and economic consequences will be dire. Just think of all those thousands of coastal communities in Africa and around the world whose livelihoods and futures depend on fish - where will they go, what will they do? How would escalating conflict over scarce resources be contained?
"Global fish stocks are deteriorating and we cannot ignore the fact, merely carrying on as if it is business as usual."

Those are his kinda mean nicknames for his parents.
Surely, the British Empire has more pressing concerns than fish and chips not being on the menu.
A game of now you see it, now you don’t.
He must have escaped from a mental institution, not one of higher learninfg, else he’d know the fish in British ‘fish and chips’ is not cod, but dogfish - a type of small, very prolific, bottom-feeding shark.
How dare he declare war on Sea Kittens, what have they ever done to him? /s
How this PC Fop is Harry’s father is beyond me.
For example, figuring out ways to keep him from knocking stuff off shelfs and cabinets with his ears as he strolls by.
Finally he has found somethng to do that is worthwhile
I love the list! This is just another of his pathetic attempts to lead on some just left leaning cause. The global warming scam really hasn’t worked out that well for him.
Just found this by mistake on the net:
“If you jump the Norther Korean border illegally, you may end up with up to 12 years hard labour.
If you cross the Afghanistan border illegally, you may get shot or worse, bushwhacked up them breas, an ye ken with they dea to sheep there?! Tomi is that you packing yer holdall, mind pack yer wellies...
So far so good, that’s fair enough.
No like many fowks wid want to do that anywi’, as these welcoming, aspiring countries do not have the generous benefit packages that HM Gov.con bestows on our “Visitors”
Right then, if anywan enters the UK illegally they may be entitled to the following:-
* A job.
* A driver’s license.
* Food stamps.
* A place to live.
* Free health care.
* Free housing and child benefits.
* Free education.
* Tax free business for 7 years.
This list is NOT intended to be exhaustive, please help yerselfs to whateffer ye fancy.
Are we a richt bunch o’ glaikit haddies or just open hearted, gushing philanthropists?”
heheh. So Prince Charlie, what about them apples?
He’s always struck me as . .well . . a little “odd”
I guess Prince Jughead couldn’t stand the thought that Harry Reid might surpass him for the title of Most Ridiculous Person on Earth, so he came up with this.
Understandable, really. That title is the one thing in life that he’s earned.
Long live the Queen!
I was sure that he would have come out in support of elephant ears and female horses in bad hats.
I enjoyed months of fish and chips and pasties in and around Padstow and Cornwall in ‘77...naught but the fondest of memories.
