Paul made a point in the 'record cod , should it have gone back?' post about the cod being roed up at the moment. I started to feel real guilty about opening a cod up and finding it full of roe, which is obviously where next years fish come from. I try now not to fish for pressured species such as cod at that time of year, and I am a confirmed kill it cook it eat it man. Maybe my efforts are a tiny drop in the ocean, but there are plenty of moans on here about lack of fish - well guys, why not do a little bit for the future of your stocks? Give more of them chance to breed.
