Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is set to return to TV screens later this year with a third installment of his Fish Fight campaign.
The new Fish Fight program will be the second follow-up to the original three-part Hugh’s Fish Fight series, which aired in January last year. Last August, Channel 4 screened Hugh’s Fish Fight: The Battle Continues, a one-off special that charted the progress made on tuna sourcing and EU fisheries reform.
Seafood industry sources claimed the 2012 show was likely to break new ground, focusing on illegal fishing and traceability in the seafood supply chain, as opposed to simply providing a further update.
A Channel 4 spokeswoman confirmed it was planning to run a third installment of Fish Fight later this year, but said it was too early to comment on the content of the show.
