As Cornish fishermen are told they cannot land any more skate or ray this year, there is a warning over quotas.

Talks have started over how much fish boats can bring in next year.

Cuts are likely for things like monkfish, haddock and cod.

Paul Trebilcock from the Cornish Fish Producers Organisation is in talks with officials and said we are facing significant cuts on a number of important species: "That's not at all welcome news for Cornish fishermen who are actually seeing if anything a greater abundance of fish on the ground and that's what's caused a lot of the quota problems this year.

"From a fishing industry point of view the future has to be good because there are plenty of fish in the sea. Is it as rosy or as good as it should be? Probably not because of the dark cloud or the sceptre of Brussels hanging over us."
