There are fewer than 100 adult cod in the North Sea because of decades of overfishing, it was revealed today.
The dwindling numbers raise fears for future stocks because cod, which can live as long as 25 years and grow to 6ft, become more fertile as they age.
Fishermen did not catch a single cod over the age of 13 last year, according to a study of sea ports across Europe.
The lower life expectancy meant a lower birth rate and a faster decline, warn scientists. Now they want North Sea quotas to be slashed so numbers can be restored.
