Sea bass stocks in west country waters have plummeted to their lowest level for 20 years.
It's being blamed on a lack of regulation and an increased appetite for the fish.
Scientists are urging the EU to restrict wild catches by around a third to allow stocks to recover. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs says sea bass numbers are "unacceptably low" but there are no current plans to restrict fishing.
