Fishy stories?

I don't trust EU officials including when they are talking about fish stocks:
Fishermen say stocks of cod - which thrive in freezing waters - are only down because global warming has raised the North Sea temperature by two degrees and forced the fish north.
According to the website of the Peterhead fishing boat Budding Rose:
Although the scientific evidence of the state of the Cod fishery is poor, and as a result Cod quotas have drastically cut, the Budding Rose and Lapwing experienced the best fishing of COD they have seen in these waters for sometime.
