Cornish fishermen could be facing more quota cuts.

Europe has proposed a 55% cut in haddock. Hake could be slashed by a third.

There are concerns that will lead to more being chucked back into the sea dead.

It could also lead to 'no fishing' zones being set up.

South West MEP Graham Watson said: "We risk being in a situation where there is simply no fish left in our seas. I have a lot of sympathy with the fishermen and many of the small fishermen themselves are calling for reforms like this.

"There's a lot of evidence that stocks recover fairly quickly. We need to be listening very carefully to the scientists who are telling us what can be taken in terms of numbers or weight of fish from any particular stock."
