On this side of the Atlantic the European Union response to the collapse of cod (and other) stocks was to introduce quotas for different species. However, when a boat has limited out it's quota for one species, it can still fish for others. Of course, trawled nets don't differentiate between species, so if they're fishing for haddock and the net comes up full of cod..... and they've already exceeded their cod quota........well, they have to chuck all those cod back. Dead.
