Prince Charles has warned that the British tradition of fish and chips could disappear unless action is taken to manage fish stocks sustainably.

Speaking at the sixth World Fisheries Congress at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre yesterday, he said: “I remember one occasion buying fish and chips from a shop in Inverness. It never occurred to me then that I was eating food that had such a reliance on how we treat a wild natural resource.”

Charles, known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, also visited Marine Scotland’s research vessel Scotia, where he tried out the fish frying facilties on board.
