MACKEREL stocks in local waters are healthy, Guernsey Fishermen's Association president Dougal Lane has said.

The Marine Conservation Society has downgraded the fish, stating it was no longer suitable to eat regularly as stocks were not sustainable.

But Mr Lane said while shoals around Scotland and Iceland were facing over-fishing, he was not aware of any problems in local waters.

'I would say the mackerel stocks are very good,' he said.

'It was down 20 years ago, but it's come up since then.'
