Fisherman forced to throw sea bass back into sea

A fisherman has expressed his anger after he was forced to throw two tonnes of sea bass worth £20k back into the sea due to strict fishing quotas. Furious Joel Dunn, 32, said that catches of this size are becoming more common, and described the number of sea bass as ‘phenomenal’. But despite increasing numbers, and fishermen struggling financially, Joel had no choice but to throw back the massive catch.
