Reports of herrings being dumped via text and email are still widespread in Spanish waters. One fish spoke of her anguish: 'To begin with it was very passionate; we grilled, we boiled, we baked…there was even some casserole action. Often, he’d just drizzle honey all over me and we’d spit-roast until the early hours. But then he changed, he became cold and impersonal. Suddenly I was ‘too thin’, ‘too young’ or I didn’t look good in ‘fishnets’.
‘The idea that there are plenty more fish in the sea, is insulting to all marine life.'
