Q&A: The 2008 EU fishing quotas

The wrangling over the 2008 European Union fishing quotas lasted through the night and resulted in a deal that was met with caution by delegates.
In the end, fishermen were left with an 18% cut to the number of days they are allowed to fish off the west coast of Scotland, a 10% cut to fishing days in the North Sea, and an 11% rise in the amount of North Sea cod they can catch.
