QUOTE: "Joan Edwards, of the Trusts, told BBC News Online: 'The cod really have gone commercially. Most of the cod we eat in the UK now come from Iceland.'"

ABSTRACT: Although this article begins by discussing the commercial disappearance of cod near the UK, it goes on to list issues surrounding the declining numbers of sandeel, the horse mussel, dolphins, and coral, as well. The information cited is from the Wildlife Trusts, a partnership effort among 47 counties in the UK.
