Marine biologist Monty Halls has urged the public to join him in a special debate on the future of fishing and the sustainable use of our seas.

The star of The Fisherman's Apprentice is hosting a debate this evening in which he'll be inviting audience members to quiz an expert panel and share their views on issues affecting the sector.

The debate - Sustainable Fisheries in a Changing World - is being held today in Plymouth University's graduation marquee on the Hoe.

One of the key questions is how to create sustainability in the fishing industry. The gurnard pictured will go from the sea to the table in Plymouth in less than 12 hours. It used to be crab bait. Now it's a fashionable eating fish. And it helps the fishermen keep to their quotas.
