Britain tells Brussels 'Give us control of our fish quotas'.

The minister in charge is holding a crunch meeting in Europe.

Richard Benyon is also calling for an end to discards.

Paul Trebilcock speaks for Cornish Producers and tells Pirate FM enough is enough:

"The idea of regional management, genuine regional management, is a good one. It will enable the fishermen, the fishing industry, to react to peaks in fish availability on the ground and that sort of thing. So, any move towards regional management would be welcomed by Cornish fishermen"

"Then it's about sensible management, which in my opinion can only be done locally, so that we've got fishermen of all different types, whether it's inshore or offshore, around the table coming up with something that's good for Cornish fishermen"
