Future fishing
Too many boats chasing too few fish is an argument commonly heard during discussions over the EU's Common Fisheries Policy.

It is not a policy that has earned the EU many brownie points over the years - fishermen don't like it and environmentalists say stocks have dwindled.

Meanwhile the policy of discards, where fish are thrown back into the sea because the catch is over quota, has been attacked by all sides.

Moves are now under way involving all EU institutions to try and reform the policy.

Shirin Wheeler is joined by UKIP MEP Marta Andreasen, Liberal Democrat MEP Chris Davies and Conservative MEP Struan Stevenson to discuss how the MEPs can play their part in this mammoth task.
