  1. I can’t see any problems with this (beyond the usual worries about overfishing) providing that it is “accidental”, and happens with materials that would otherwise go to waste. We have to live in the world we live in and if people are catching fish it has to make sense to reduce the amount of waste from the process. After all if we lived in the stone age its unlikely that we’d let much of a mammoth go to waste if we were lucky enough to catch one.

  2. I agree, and with the point about ensuring that it is genuine waste. I worry that once the industry is up and running, there will be an incentive to create “waste” to supply it. At least it isn’t catching “waste” fish (like sand eels) to feed “valuable” fish (like salmon).
