THREE top Spanish chefs have joined forces with the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) to highlight overfishing in the Mediterranean.

With an astonishing 90% of the Med’s fish species over-exploited, Valencia cooks Rakel Cernicharo, Alberto Ferruz and Andres Pereda are backing the WWF Fish Forward campaign.

The campaign hopes to raise awareness with fish eaters to help them buy in a more sustainable way.

Spain is the fourth biggest importer and ninth biggest exporter of fish in the world, with the majority of fish eaten in Spain consumed in bars and restaurants.

Between 12-28% of fish caught worldwide each year is illegally fished, with 31% of the world’s fish now overfished and some 800 million people worldwide depending on fish to live.

  1. It was the fault of the completely unskilled construction staff. Morton buildings WOULD NOT make it right other than to send out a person out a few times and also put some caulking in the holes in the roofing that were put there by the staff. The roof covering still leaks, as well as Morton will certainly do NOTHING about it.
